The Escoles Cor Blanquinegre project, headed by the VCF Foundation with the support of the Valencia CF Footballers Association, is a corporate social responsibility initiative directed at the teaching staff of certain schools and youth centres located in neighbourhoods of Valencia and the surrounding area -all with a tough social situation. There is weekly training with a strong educational profile, aimed at improving school performance in at-risk populations, which implies a reduction in school absenteeism rates and an improvement in behavior and academic results.
