The Bovelander Foundation works in areas where, and with people for who, it is not obvious that they have a fair chance at a better life.
With our hockey program we bring children, young adults and their communities together and support them in their personal, social, athletic and educational development.
To have an impact and to be able to implement our programs correctly we always work with local organizations and local people. So that the programs ultimately can be continued, organizational and financial, independent from our support.
In the areas where we work we make use of the 3-layer pyramids-model, which aims to have every child and every coach to be challenged at their own development level.
The grassroots program is the bottom layer and is the basis of our program where hockey is used as an instrument for personal and social development. The middle and top layer together form the talent program. Here, hockey is not just used as a means but also a goal itself.
