Street League is the UK’s leading sport for employment charity. At Street League you play sport everyday and learn the key skills to move into work.
“It's great to see how Street League are using football to change the lives of young people and help them get jobs” - Jose Mourinho, Manchester United Manager.
Youth unemployment is still a massive problem in the UK. More than 1 in 7 16-24 year olds are unemployed, which is a huge cost to the taxpayer and society as well as the long-term consequences of unemployment on mental and physical wellbeing.
We think this is unacceptable, and our vision is to see an end to youth unemployment.
Street League operates in 14 regions across the UK with our sport for employment programmes running in 36 local communities. Our 10-12 week long programmes support unemployed 16-24 year olds to learn the key skills, gain the necessary qualifications and work experience to move into a sustainable job or further training.
