    Juventus, in collaboration with UNESCO, unveils the "Gioca con Me" scheme in Guatemala, an initiative to boost social inclusion through sport

    From Turin to Colombia and now Guatemala: Juventus' "Gioca con Me" scheme is now ready to kick off in Central America after an unveiling ceremony today in the offices of the country's Ministry of Education.

    The project, developed by the Bianconeri club in collaboration with UNESCO has been in action on home soil since 2012 but is now beginning to spread its wings abroad, allowing youngsters belonging to the more disadvantaged social classes to take part free of charge in activities held at J|Academy centres overseas.

    The program was officially presented by a host of Juventus ambassadors alongside Guatemalan and UNESCO representatives, who underlined the importance of the tight bond between the nation's local institutions and the club. 

    The event served to outline the efforts made by all of those supporting the project, which enables its participants to develop not only their footballing abilities, but social skills too.

    Also present on the day were a handful of young Bianconeri students, who have subscribed to the programme and were handed J|Academy / adidas kits with which to begin their fresh, exciting adventure in earnest.
