Professor Jan Tønnesvang from Aarhus BSS is part of a new project called Sportucation. The project will help young people in eight to tenth grade at risk of not obtaining a secondary education.

Sportucation is based on the fact that a good community lis the young person towards a youth education and that a positive approach to one's fellow human beings strengthens the qualities needed for the young person to complete a youth education. The youth become part of a team built around mutual respect, trust and faith in each other and each other's abilities. Mutual trust and respect requires precisely reciprocity, and thus responsibility for each other. This creates a focus on the necessary professional skills which supports the incentive to become proficient.

Sportucation is a collaboration between DGI, Vejle Municipality, Fredericia Municipality, FC Fredericia, the Ministry of Education and Aarhus BSS.
