Our Projects Abroad programme is working with a growing number of schools and community groups around the world to offer our BALANCE training on a pro-bono basis both live and via our on demand courses. Through liaising with our Grow Ambassadors on the ground, the aim of the programme is to help schools, families and in the wider community support the children and young people in their care in building the skills they need to feel confident and empowered within themselves.

Las Barisas Soccer Club for at risk children and young people
This non-profit project works to support the physical and mental health of vulnerable children through soccer. Las Barisas (Breezes) strives to improve self-esteem through the positive development of social communication skills and the sense of belonging that comes with being an active part of a team. Through this proactive approach to supporting children and young people at risk of exposure to substance abuse and antisocial engagement, Las Barisas helps young people find a new and better way to participate in their local communities.
This training was offered in spanish to ensure the young people involved got the most out of the experience.
