Situation

Young people living in disadvantaged areas have the odds stacked against them just because of their postcode. The young people we work with have complicated lives and most have very low confidence and self-esteem. They did not thrive in school and struggle to find work with no qualifications or work experience. As a result of the Coronavirus crisis, more young people than ever are out of work and in need of support and reassurance. We can help them reach the right destination.

Solution

Street League help young people to develop the skills and confidence they need to move out of poverty and start their journey into employment. Our academies use the power of sport to help young people learn in a way that works for them - it is informal, fun and a natural way of loosening nerves and encouraging young people to get involved. Ensuring young people are equipped with the essential skills, confidence and ambition they need to succeed is more important now than it has ever been.
