Golden Goal's aim

... is to enable young disadvantaged adults with particular "education resistance" to score their "Golden Goal" by  improving their literacy and numeracy skills, and to promote their social and cultural integration into society: In order to achieve this, the project

  • developed basic and social skills training concepts in combination with sporting activities (football, but also other sports depending on the local condition and the target groups), to attract participation and increase motivation
  • developed a curriculum and methodological tool box containing sections for the special requirements of the following target groups: Educational drop-outs, ethnic minorities (especially immigrants and Roma), long-term unemployed young adults, socially marginalised persons
  • benefits from the public attention to the EURO 2008 European Football Championship  by connecting adult education aspects with sporting activities, and to raise public awareness of the project's aims by specifically designed Golden Goal Demonstration Events in each partner's country

"Golden Goal Curriculum" and "Golden Goal Toolbox" are designed as web-based materials for free download.
