WELCOME TO THE STREET SOCCER FOUNDATION
The Street Soccer Foundation is an award-winning charitable non-profit organisation operating nationwide throughout England, working in a collaborative manner with Football Club delivery partners and Supporters using football as a catalyst to improve the lives of vulnerable and homeless young people across the country.
OUR MISSION STATEMENT: TO HELP END YOUTH HOMELESSNESS THROUGH THE POWER OF FOOTBALL
Our nationally acclaimed flagship program is our 'Street Soccer Academy' - the No.1 football-led project tackling youth homelessness in England. Providing a 10-week learning and development course (or 'experience') for 16-25 year olds (male and female) provisioned at our Football Club partner delivery hubs, offering selected young participants a fusion of: 1) Professional Football Coaching; 2) Growth/Positive Mindset Training; and 3) Skills & Employability Workshops: a specially crafted 'hat-trick' to enable course participants to fundamentally improve their mindset and be ready and able to move into Work, Education or Further Training on successful graduation.
We also operate The Street Soccer School program, delivered at partnering Primary and Secondary Schools also over a 10-week period, providing vulnerable and dis-engaged Primary and Secondary school students a mix of professional football coaching for health and well-being purposes, in addition to the training of a positive mindset, to help build confidence, self-belief, aspiration and emotional intelligence. Changing attitudes and behaviours to effect positive future outcomes.
Both the Street Soccer Academy and Street Soccer School programs use the power of football to help young people want - and be able - to make a change in their lives for the better. The proven impact of both programs instils greater confidence and self-belief in young people; improves their health and well-being; and empowers participants to take positive action; encouraging individuals throughout to reach their goals, both on and off the pitch, and to inspire others to do the same.
