StepUp Foundation is a not-for-profit that uses sport to improve the lives of disadvantaged young people.
Almost a million young people in England are NEET (not in employment, education or training), more than one in very seven 16-24 year olds. This is one of the most serious social problems facing the country, and it has enormous economic and social costs.
Futures4All is a project designed to re-engage young people who are NEET.
Through a series of sports activity, employability skills workshops, vocational training, community volunteering, and work experience opportunities, Futures4All hopes to increase self-esteem, development confidence, and deliver self-improvement.
Futures4All enables disadvantaged young people to develop existing/gain new skills so they can realise their true potential.
Outcomes include paid employment, further vocational training, and further education.
StepUp Foundation needs to raise £6,000 in order to put its first 20 participants through the 12-week Futures4All programme. The breakdown of costs are as follows:
Sports Hall Hire - £960
Meeting Room Hire - £1,800
Football Coaching Qualifications - £3,200 (£160 per person)
The actual cost to deliver this project is £16,000, with £10,000 being the usual fee to pay for a trainer/facilitator to deliver the workshops/coaching sessions. However, I've committed to investing my time free of charge, to ensure these 20 young adults get the start they so desperately need.
So what do you need to do? Nothing much, except consider supporting StepUp in anyway that you can. Ideally we want your money to help us raise the required £6,000, so if you can, whatever amount, please hit the DONATE button now!
Conisder this...if just 100 commuters gave up their morning latte for a single month, and diverted this money to our fund, we'd reach our target!
Small steps, big difference....go on, StepUp today!
