Non-profit organization Planet Citizens - Language Training 2024 recruits and supports European volunteer coaches. Based in Paris Region's disadvantaged areas' sports clubs and schools, they assist French coaches and sports teachers to get our athletes and pupils to learn languages during and outside training.
Thanks to the financial support of the National Centre for Sport Development (CNDS) , Planet Citizens conducts a pilot project in partnership with Boxing Beats (Aubervilliers, 93), Boxer Inside Club (Paris 13), Lumpini Muay Thai (Saint Denis, 93) and Rugby Olympique Pantin (93).
These clubs host international coaches as part of the European Voluntary Service (EVS) program. They work closely with volunteers and employees of our association to develop teaching methods to learn languages through sport. The social impact of theses methods is measured and ultimately aims at being used widely.
The non-profit organization Planet Citizens - Language Training 2024 commits to launch a multilingual revolution for the Paris 2024 Olympic and Paralympics Games.
By enhancing the practice of languages to young people from disadvantaged areas through their favourite sports, we are creating a generation of Olympic Languages Champions!
