Sport 4 Life UK believes in a level playing field where every young person has the opportunity to create a better future for themselves. We are proud to provide the opportunity for young people aged 11-29 to prepare for, and move into, sustained education, employment or training – by improving their employability and key life skills – through our sport-themed mentoring and training services.
We aim to connect young people with employers and education providers to give them the opportunity to create a better future for themselves.
Our services include:
- One-to-one mentoring
- Employability skills training (e.g. interview skills, CV support, mock interviews)
- Social Action Projects
Between July 2020-21 we meaningfully supported over 1,000 young people in the West Midlands. 78% of those were from ethnically diverse backgrounds.
75% of young people we worked with significantly improved their life skills and 95% significantly improved their employability skills.
