“Sport is integral to Street League and helps to make Street League stand out as a unique employability organisation."

DR. Laura Hills - Brunel University London

We are innovating our programme with different sports that help us to support young people with different needs and barriers. Whilst our heritage has been in football, and it continues to be our biggest programme, by introducing dance-fitness and fitness programmes we have successfully broadened our offering to help a wider range of young people.

SUCCESSES:

  • Introducing dance-fitness over the past two years has increased our female participation to 17% (406 young females) from 13% (283) in FY15/16.
  • Piloting a new fitness programme has allowed us to increase our female participation rate and has shown high demand from young people.

FUTURE FOCUS:

  • Continuing to increase the diversity of participants with 30% female participation goal by 2019. 
  • Measuring health benefits of sport as well as employability.
  • Expanding fitness programme into more regions to understand more about its impact.
