Our highly-qualified coaches and volunteers provide not only expertise but living proof of the transformational power of sport – redirecting idle energy and empowering disadvantaged young people.
Together with our community and youth partners, including Police & Crime Commissioner networks locally, the charity plays an important role in shifting attitudes and taking non-traditional approaches through this work.
The initiative has been devised to raise aspirations and create local role models by upskilling local young people to develop pro-social behaviours through sports leadership.
Working with young people one to one and in groups, activities explore social and emotional wellbeing through participation in sport and physical education activity.
Specialist coaching staff will work in each community for up to 16 weeks. Workshops will offer a physical outlet through sport and an educational outlet through the I can Lead Award framework.
Young people experience the benefits of engaging in hands on learning to redirect behaviours and explore possible pathways into employment within the community, sport and physical activity sector.
