About Street League

Street League operates in 36 local communities across England and Scotland.

Street League's vision is to see an end to youth unemployment in the UK.

Young people are almost three times as likely to be unemployed as all other age groups combined. We support the young people who who need our help the most, which means we run our programmes in the areas with the highest youth unemployment rates. Youth unemployment can have a long-term impact on the physical and mental wellbeing of a young person, with higher chances of being welfare-dependant later in life.

So what do we do? We tackle poverty using the power of sport to help young people who need it most get into education, training and employment. 

Our incredible team of passionate employees make a difference to the lives of young people in the UK's most disadvantaged communities. In the past 12 months, we helped 1,241 young people into jobs, education and training. 

 

How do we make a difference?

We use the power of sport as a hook to engage young people on our Academy programmes where we teach them vital life skills and employability skills, and deliver qualifications in well-being, employability, maths, English, and sport. This award-winning programme enables them to achieve their full potential and move into work, education or training. 

Our highly-skilled staff provide one-to-one support to every young person on our Academies, understanding their individual needs and aspirations. 

Most young people we support have no prior work experience, so we set up work placements which enable participants to gain valuable experience and put the skills we teach into practice. 

We know that getting a job is just part of the journey. Once young people secure a job we go the extra mile, providing six months of in-work support and advice (to them and their employer), thus ensuring a smooth transition into sustained employment.

We're committed to honest social impact reporting. You can see how we're doing in the interactive table below.
