VERSUS linked up with Football Beyond Borders to deliver a creative writing masterclass in Instagram captions for Year 8 and Year 9 students who are learning remotely during lockdown.
As part of FBB’s “My Idol & I” programme, which inspires young people by asking them to explore and identify with the journeys of the ballers they most admire, we tasked a group of students between the ages of 12 and 14 to write a tribute to their idols in traditional VERSUS style – with the best caps being posted to our IG channel, platforming their work to 100k people.
FBB supports young people from disadvantaged backgrounds who are passionate about football but disengaged at school in order to help them finish school with the skills and grades to make a successful transition into adulthood. The deliver educational programmes based around their biggest passions, with football playing a huge part in that.
Congratulations to all the students who took part in the workshop, and to Arsh, Mathieu, and Jean for making the top three. Young ballers.
