Michael (21) secured a full-time role at Barnet FC, following his recent graduation from the Street Soccer Academy. Michael had been homeless for six months before he joined the course and didn’t think he’d get selected onto the Academy when he applied. He was nervous about meeting other people and course organisers, as he was keen to impress and do well.
“The programme has definitely changed my life; I’m more positive than I’ve ever been. The Street Soccer course helped me become more work ready. I felt more able to get into employment. I would recommend the Street Soccer course to everyone. It really helped me and I loved it.”
