About the Program:
Mincidelice JL Bourg en Bresse is entering its second year with its social partner Adapei de l’ain, a center which offers specialized education and care for children and teenagers with intellectual disabilities. This season’s program includes 12 new participants, nine boys and three girls with the ages of 13 to 16. The club aims to help their community to be independent by working on pushing one’s limits, developing physical and motor skills, ensuring group cohesion and overcoming fears, as well as many other skills. Bourg will be starting its program on November 9, 2023, and will continue until February 8, 2024. It will integrate the Olympic Games into the context of sport as a tool for development.
