AT THE DERO FOUNDATION WE BELIEVE
Soccer is Good for the Soul
The DeRo Foundation was established by Dwayne De Rosario to support local community initiatives which use soccer as a platform to help youth in high priority neighbourhoods develop the skills and confidence they need to succeed.
Our goal is to help youth achieve their maximum potential on and off the pitch by providing mentorship and developmental tools in the area of education, leadership, self-confidence and health and nutrition.
Soccer was transformative for me as a child. It's why I'm so passionate about ensuring as many kids as possible have the same opportunity as I did.
DEVELOPING OUR YOUTH
Canada & the Caribbean
Local Programming in Communities Where It Counts
Soccer is a global game... a game that allows for individual expression through a team experience, on a playing field that is just and fair – wherever it's located.
Through our programs in Canadian and Caribbean communities, we help our youth to develop important life skills that translate across borders and languages.
