New partnership to create employment opportunities
The Real Betis Foundation and the Doña María Foundation have signed a collaboration agreement within the framework of the municipal programme ‘Sevilla Integra’, aimed at people that struggle to find employment.
The president of the Real Betis Foundation, Rafael Gordillo, together with the president of the Doña María Foundation, José Vázquez, presented the agreement in a ceremony presided by Juan Manuel Flores Cordero, Deputy Mayor Delegate for Social Welfare, Employment and Integral Plans for Social Transformation. The presentation ceremony was also attended by Real Betis Balompie’s director of Cantera, Miguel Calzado and Óscar Cantarero, canterano verdiblanco and user of the project within the Real Betis Balompié Foundation.
Through this agreement, the young Real Betis players will be able to gain experiences within the Sevilla Integra programme. At the same time, the Doña María Foundation will offer training for professional profiles of the Real Betis Balompié Foundation.
The ‘Sevilla Integra’ call is a municipal programme through which non-profit organisations develop projects aimed at facilitating the inclusion of unemployed people through professional orientation actions, training in transversal and technical skills and the development of professional internships in companies.
The Doña María Foundation is developing this project for the third consecutive edition and after the excellent results (160 people have found employment) achieved in previous years.
With the signing of this agreement, the Real Betis Balompié Foundation once again shows its involvement in different social themes as a part of the social values of the Real Betis team.
Likewise, members of the different divisions of the youth academy and of the different social projects of the Real Betis Foundation will have access to the different social resources of the Doña María Foundation (training, employment, orientation programmes, etc.). This agreement makes the different initiatives that the Real Betis Foundation and the Doña María Foundation have been developing together for years complete.
