According to The Daily Mail, Jose Mourinho has officially become an ambassador for the club’s ‘To Care is To Do’ project which is delivered by Spurs’ charitable foundation.
The project aims to help children in the social care system achieve better educational outcomes through learning out of school hours.
As a part of the project, Mourinho will now deliver mentoring classes to kids in social care.
It is revealed that the Tottenham boss will deliver sessions on self-belief and achievement to the kids and will also attend a number of charity events throughout the year.
The 58-year-old announced his support for the ‘To Care is To Do’ project’ at the annual Haringey Educational Achievement Awards.
The Portuguese praised the charitable work the club is doing and admitted that he was keen to do his part as soon as he became aware that Tottenham were involved in helping kids in social care fulfil their potential.
Mourinho said at the online event: “I would like to congratulate everyone who received an award this year.
“I have learned a lot about your incredible achievements, often in the face of difficulties, and I’m inspired by it.
“So much so, that I have been speaking with the Club and I’m pleased to announce that I have become an ambassador.
“I am extremely passionate about helping young people achieve the best they can in life and realise their potential.
“Children that have grown up in care often find themselves at a disadvantage when it comes to education and employment opportunities – the Club does fantastic work to tackle this through To Care Is To Do.
“This has inspired me to get involved and do whatever I can to work with this group of young people, offer advice and help them believe in themselves.’
“The ‘To Care is To Do’ project has been delivered for more than 15 years by Tottenham, and help young people achieve better results at school, develop new and existing skills and prepare for independence and adulthood.”
