The Associação Cristã de Moços of Rio Grande do Sul (ACM-RS) supports societal transformation and promotes a life of love, justice and peace. Its futebol de rua activities aim to develop young people’s conflict resolution skills and promote values such as respect, cooperation, solidarity, gender equality and a healthy life. Through football, participants also develop their personal social skills.



ACM-RS coordinates five centres in disadvantaged communities in Porto Alegre, where data shows that children are more susceptible to drug abuse, alcoholism and domestic violence. ACM-RS activities help young people to become responsible leaders in the projects and in society as a whole.
