Progressions Coordinator - East Lothian

Dean Ballantyne

I started working for Street League in 2016 just after leaving college.  I firstly started as a Youth and Community coach working with various staff members in East Lothian, Edinburgh and Midlothian.  This provided me with loads of experience and knowledge which has allowed me to progress into a Progressions coordinator role in East Lothian.

I attended Edinburgh college and completed my HND in Sports Coaching and Fitness after leaving school.  Once I started college I became a football and multi-sports coach across Edinburgh.  My passion for coaching and working with young people is what attracted me most to Street League, I am a very enthusiastic person who is keen to always help people and provide them with opportunities to better themselves.  I play football for Musselburgh Athletic, I have also lived my whole life in Musselburgh which creates a personal relationship with me and the young people of East Lothian as I know what it is like to grow up in these areas

I wake up every day knowing I get to make a positive impact on someone’s life and that for me is the most rewarding thing Street League provides to myself.  It’s a privilege to work for an organisation that helps benefit so many different people.  Creating relationships, watching people grow and achieve there goals makes my job incredibly enjoyable and it is something I will never take for granted.
