Not Just for Kick (NJFK) Project

 

Background:

 

Right To Play’s strategic aims and objectives is to use sport and play to educate and empower children and youths facing adversity. Sport and play is used as a means for learning and life skill development to enhance the quality of education, transform health practices and build peaceful communities.

 

City Football Foundation supports Right To Play’s ‘Not Just for Kicks’ project in Thailand since 2018, to support city youth to uplift themselves and their peers through the global language of football.

 

The Not Just for Kicks project provides access to safe play spaces and develop youth leaders who harness the power of football to support the positive and healthy development of young people.

With communities, Right To Play (RTP) rehabilitated a number of existing play spaces within Bangkok to provide safe and accessible areas for young people to play football and other games. The spaces are also used for project activity delivery and become areas that youths will manage on behalf of their local communities during and beyond the life of the project.

 

A cohort of youths from the target areas are trained as youth leaders to lead their peers in football-based learning activities and use of Reflect-Connect-Apply (RCA) to develop life skills. Specific football games/drills will be tailored to teach communication, teamwork, leadership, problem solving, and conflict resolution skills. At the end of a game youth leaders use RCA, which involves youths reflecting on what they learned in the game, connecting this to their wider life experiences and thinking about how to apply the learning in similar situations, or to benefit others.

 

In each play space, youth leaders and RTP deliver football sessions to youths twice a week. Football is used to facilitate participatory learning to improve life skill development that can prevent participation in crime and anti-social behaviour.
