Street League

Street League work with unemployed young people aged 16-24 living in some of the most deprived areas of the UK. We use sport (football, dance or fitness) as a hook to engage with unemployed young people who then join our sport and employability Academy. While on the Academy the young people receive 121 and group employability support. Sport is used to teach softer skills and make learning fun.

Last year over 70% of our participants (1,540 young people) progressed into an employment outcome.

Founded 2003
