Phases of the Child & Youth Development Program
The Child and Youth Development Programme was a social initiative by TheFootballLink, under the aegis of the Delhi Police YUVA programme, to provide football as a platform for underprivileged children to steer away from negative influences such as crime and drugs. Here is a look at the detailed segregation of the various phases involved in the CYDP.
PHASE I – EDUCATE Organize presentations in slums, government schools, private schools & NGOs to educate children with the Delhi Police on the benefits of participating in a sport and ways in which the Delhi Police can protect and support these children in all aspects of their lives. Mentor Training Programmes: Periodic training camps for the coaches and mentors with the latest child development techniques and philosophies
PHASE II – LINK Through our philosophy ‘TRUE TO THE PLAYER, TRUE TO THE GAME’ the CYDP initiative is a collective effort by all the stakeholders in the society to build a better future for upcoming generations. Stakeholders: Connect CSR initiatives, Grants and Donors to the various projects to augment the Delhi Police Fund and create a sustainable and effective programme. Connect Between the Police and Society: Trust in the law enforcement agency is the most essential element for the police to be able to control, monitor and reduce crime in the society. By providing a platform to the police to reach out to the citizens, we aim to bridge the crucial gap.
PHASE III – PROVIDE An exciting and progressive environment for children where they learn important life skills while developing moral and social values through continuous interactions with coaches and mentors from the police and society.
