At Valeo we have committed ourselves to increasing access to and opportunities in youth sports. This summer we collected gently used and new gear to be sent to Bola Pra Frente Academia de Futbol in Praia, Cape Verde.
We are proud to help support this wonderful organization who share our goals of using the beautiful game as a metaphor for life as we work to develop youth soccer players but also strong citizens and leaders of the next generation.
In addition to sending equipment, we were pleased to have the opportunity to host two members, Rai and Saulo (pictured left), from Bola Pra Frente at our Summer Camp held in Boston, MA.
We hope to continue and strengthen our partnership with this great Academy in Cape Verde as we look to create an ongoing exchange program between the two Clubs.
