Heracles Works

The Heracles Foundation stands for utilizing the social impact of Heracles Almelo and attaching value to developing, connecting, and entertaining its supporters. Through the Heracles Foundation, we shape social involvement through numerous projects and activities. The Heracles Foundation connects and supports organizations in the area with its social goals. The people around us are the ones who make Heracles Almelo extraordinary. 

Football and society are inextricably linked, and the Heracles Foundation propagates this. We are here for everyone. We do things our way. We dare to choose for ourselves and our environment. We dare to choose what is good for the Heracles Foundation. We are the cub without prejudices, the club where boundaries do not exist. Behave normally but be extraordinary. That is typical for the Heracles Foundation.

Heracles Werkt (Works) is a sports/reintegration programme for all residents of the municipality of Almelo who have a benefit and are at a distance from the labor market. With this program, the municipality of Almelo, USG Restart, and the Heracles Foundation use their facilities and contacts to help the participants grow further in their careers with one ultimate goal: a job and/or training within six months. This is done under the supervision of a social sports coach from Heracles Almelo and a reintegration coach from USG Restart. The project is a sports programme in the stadium of Heracles Almelo, Erve Asito. Also, the programme is linked to various reintegration activities. The participants form a permanent team and are set in motion together. In addition to local activities, the team participates in football training sessions and football matches.
