WHY SHOULD YOU? ... THIS IS HOW YOUR SUPPORT HELPS US HELP OTHERS
The Street Soccer Foundation has an exceptional record of achievement for the young people coming onto our courses, since we were formed in 2015.
In our most recent Social Value Report (conducted externally by Kingfisher) the Street Soccer Academy course was found to be generating £8 for every £1 invested, proving the level of impact being achieved, for the benefit of the communities in where we currently deliver.
Our goal is simple. We want to help more homeless and vulnerable young people across the country improve their situation and create a better future for themselves.
Together, Changing Lives through Football.
6 MAIN WAYS YOU CAN SUPPORT US TO HELP SUPPORT OTHERS:
You could volunteer to run a (2-hour) Workshop for us during an Academy course; help out at one of our Events; help our leadership team with administrative support or Marketing assistance; it could be offering to become a Trustee or Advisor to the Foundation; or becoming a Mentor for our young people.
Our Volunteers are crucial to the success and continuation of The Street Soccer Foundation. And we know that your donating time to a good cause can positively impact you too!
As well as the sense of gratification gained from giving your time to people who need it, you can also benefit from many other mental and physical gains such as: Increased confidence by trying something new; Meeting new people and being part of your community; Learning new skills; Being active (depending on the role); and Having fun! And the social values of volunteering are numerous. Volunteer work also reflects well on the individual.
Through these sorts of extra-curricular activities, your employer is given an insight into your personality: the fact that an interviewee is willing to donate their time and energy into helping others, without asking for anything in return. Street Soccer Volunteers work across all professional levels with various qualifications and/or a wealth of experience from previous roles which benefit our charity.
Each volunteer is carefully vetted to confirm that they meet the necessary and appropriate standards of what our Foundation requires. This is crucial in ensuring that we deliver the best service and care possible to our young people. The Street Soccer Foundation is all about partnerships and collaboration.
We are indebted to our amazing team and are always looking for more people to join our Street Soccer family: our Street Soccer United.
