The team

The Black Pearl Soccer Academy is a training club for young Brazilian athletes in situation of social vulnerability and refugees from all over the world. What makes the Black Pearls a unique club is its pioneering proposal, the educational and professional qualification (support, reinforcement and development of competences). The philosophy goes far beyond preparing boys to become standouts on the lawns.

The goal is to empower these young people to become protagonists of their own stories. To this end, high-performance football is used as a tool to create opportunities for refugees to thrive individually and collectively and to contribut to positive social impact.

The Black Pearls Academy in Brazil and Haiti is both a home, a school and a complete training center.
