Street League

Street League is one of the most exciting, dynamic and fastest-growing charities in the UK. Savile Rogue has supported them since 2011. 

They specialise in changing the lives of young people from disadvantaged backgrounds through the power of football. Originally founded as an organisation working with homeless people in 2001, they now work with 16 to 25-year-olds who are not in employment, education and training (NEET). 

Street League classroom sessionTheir vision is to help bring an end to structural youth unemployment in the UK. With almost one million young people out of work, youth unemployment is the single biggest threat to the future prosperity of our country.  

Street League engages with these young people in a structured football and education 'Academy' programme, with two hours in the classroom and two hours on the pitch each day. This intensive 10-week programme develops vital employability skills such as communication, teamwork and goal-setting. 

It also offers nationally-recognised qualifications. You can read more about how the Street League model works here. They hold CV-writing sessions and work with corporate partners to deliver mock interviews, in order to prepare our participants for the real world, and following the Academy our graduates move into six-week work placements. 

Street League are, rightly, incredibly proud of their track record. Over the next 12 months, more than 1000 young people from disadvantaged backgrounds will progress into employment, education or training. All thanks to the power of football, and thanks to people like you.
