CHANGE LIVES THROUGH FOOTBALL
Street League is one of the most exciting, dynamic and fastest-growing charities in the UK. We specialise in changing the lives of disadvantaged young people through the power of football.
Originally founded as an organisation working with homeless people in 2001, we now work with 16 to 25-year-olds who are not in employment, education and training (NEET), including young offenders and substance misusers.
Our 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. You can read about the scale of the problem here.
Street League engages with the 'hardest to reach' young people in a structured football and education 'Academy' programme, with two hours in the classroom and two hours on the pitch each day.
