The club’s Psychology and Methodology Department committed to this initiative for the benefit of the Academy players’ education and personal development, with a clear objective in mind: to help members of the different centres in their personal development, by acting with a customised social manner adapted to their special needs and difficulties and sharing their experiences with them. This exchange of values will benefit the growth of all involved. The initiative consists in doing activities together throughout the season, with regular meetings both in the association centres and in the Villarreal CF facilities. The members of the centres are also invited to attend games and cheer on their teams in the Ciudad Deportiva (Villarreal CF Training Ground). So far the project has achieved new standards in terms of the progress of the people that attend these centres and contributed to our community, strengthening the bond with our club. The different teams have learnt a different reality, far away from the football world, witnessing the challenges that people with different disabilities face in their daily life.
