Street League is the UK’s leading sport for employment charity. We support young people who live in some of the most disadvantaged areas of the UK to learn the skills they need to overcome their practical and personal barriers and become economically active. Sport is at the heart of what we do and what makes us successful. We support young people holistically, recognising the inextricable links between wellbeing, health and employment.
We use the power of sport to help young people, aged 14 to 30, who face personal barriers to employment to improve their wellbeing, secure employment and have a brighter future. We work in schools, communities, and with employers to equip young people with the confidence, motivation, essential skills and qualifications needed to succeed in the world of work.
Our sports and employability academies for unemployed young people, is an exciting step in our journey to preventing – as well as ‘treating’ – youth unemployment and in-work poverty. Our programmes develop the life and workplace skills, self-worth and sense of belonging young people need to thrive and move into high quality employment, education or training.
