One million 16 to 24-year-olds are out of work – that’s one in every five young people. We are in danger of raising a lost generation, with young unemployed people facing low self esteem, long-term inactivity, health problems and anti-social behaviour.
Street League uses the power of football to attract and hold the attention of disaffected, disillusioned young people, and engage them on a unique employability programme.
During the eight-week ‘Academy’, the charity develops crucial life skills such as communication, teamwork, goal-setting, CV-writing and mock interviews, and offer nationally-recognised qualifications and work experience schemes.
Three out of four graduates from the Street League Academy get a job or move into education and training.
Because of its track record, Street League has been a charity partner of The Football Association since 2010, and No 10 Downing Street’s volunteering partner during 2011. Its official ambassador is Holland and Manchester United striker Robin van Persie.
We at Savile Rogue have seen the change Street League makes in the lives of these young people, and believe us, it works very powerfully. That's why we are so keen to help them. We donated £1500 in our first year of working together so thank you for everyone who has donated.
