She Got Game! (Erasmus+ project)
‘She Got Game!’ is a follow-up to a previous Erasmus+ project: ‘Changing the Game by Changing its Players’. That project showed that the number one issue many European youth work and community sport organisations struggle with is girls participation. As a result, the project’s main coordinator, the Dutch NGO ISA-Youth, was inspired to bring on partners – including GAME – to try to solve this problem. And so, the She Got Game! project was born.
The objective of ‘She Got Game!’ is to get community sport organisations and community sport coaches to think and act differently on how to design, implement and evaluate interventions for teenage girls in order to increase Girls Engagement.
The project will be collaborating on developing a good practice ‘how to guide’ to be available for organisations around challenges and good practice covering various themes, from various programmes targeting girls in different countries. This is coming soon, in early 2021, so stay tuned!
In addition, the project’s website, https://www.shegotgame.eu/ offers research, insights, videos, and training sessions that are being developed to support volunteers, coaches, organisations and champions, to equip them to approach communities and girls as assets to be learned from. The training will cover how to take the voice of the girls into consideration, whether they are active or inactive, and how to change the way in which programmes are organised to better include girls.
