A further 18 clubs to join Deutsche Bank’s sporteducate programme in September

Following a successful pilot scheme across five specially selected clubs at the end of 2013 and the addition of 10 clubs in April, Sporteducate, Deutsche Bank’s flagship Born to Be partnership with the charity Sported, will be rolling out the initiative to the final 18 London clubs in September.

Designed in conjunction with the sport for development charity Sported, sporteducate is a pioneering education programme which provides clubs with the funding, training and management support needed to run education and / or employability activities alongside their core sports offering.

As part of the scheme, participants aged 11- to 18-years receive supplementary educational classes at each club varying from core curriculum activities to employability skills, with the aim of helping them to stay in school, improve performance and increase their self-esteem.

Speaking about his experience with the programme, Rashawn aged 12 who is a participant at Football Beyond Borders in Croydon said: “The homework club helps you get your education back on track. It’s very helpful. It is also good because we get to play football as well. The teachers come in and help you with your homework when you need it. I find it easy to concentrate here.”

Deutsche Bank employee volunteers play a big part in delivering the programme, providing mentoring, CV workshops, mock interviews, and becoming Trustees and Treasurers of the clubs. The Bank aims to reach over 2,300 young people through volunteering at the clubs by 2017.

Deutsche Bank volunteer, Drew Price, CB&S,  who mentors with Crown and Manor Club in Hackney shared: "I thought volunteering would be rewarding, but this has been a great opportunity to see learning in a more exciting and lively environment - it really shows how even maths can be engaging and fun!"
