Raheal, Edinburgh

Raheal was unemployed when he came to Street League. He was struggling with motivation and finding it hard to keep a daily routine. This meant he found it difficult to look for jobs and opportunities.

Raheal is a talented footballer and staff were quick to notice this and encourage him. They also saw how sport positively affected his mood, helping him to be more pro-active and start looking for opportunities.

Raheal said: “I really enjoyed the course it was fun and engaging. I liked how we got to gym and play football all the time. The course helped me get into a habit of searching and applying for jobs.”

Participant

With daily training sessions and matches at our academy in Edinburgh, he decided he wanted to explore a career in sport. Shortly after he secured a place on The Gordon Strachan Football Performance Course at college. 

Youth and Community Coach Liam O’Kane said: “Raheal thrives when he’s being active. I think this will be the best stepping-stone for him to further progress his career in sport."
