Street League uses the power of football to get the most disadvantaged youth into work, education or training. Street League works with 16-25 year olds not in education, employment or training; offenders and substance users. Through its structured football programmes, Street League builds the confidence, life skills and qualifications necessary for young people to construct their futures. Seventy-five percent of Street League’s participants progress into jobs or college, all through the power of football. Over the last 10 years, Street League has worked with more than 22,000 young people.
The British Asian Trust is funding the establishment and running of a new Street League Academy in Stratford, London, an area with a large proportion of British Asian youth.
