Soccer AM has been supporting the national football charity Street League again this season, continuing a partnership started in 2012.

Street League uses the power of football to tackle youth unemployment across the UK. It specialises in changing the lives of young people from challenging backgrounds through an award-winning Academy programme which mixes football and education.

The charity aims to help 16 to 25-year-olds from challenging backgrounds with no qualifications into 10-week Academy programmes mixing football with education. 

After providing key employability skills and qualifications, a six-week work placement is arranged for the graduates.

Inspiring

Presenter Max Rushden said: “Everyone at Soccer AM is really behind Street League. I’ve been lucky enough to visit some of the Academies and have listened to the young people talk about how the charity has helped them get their lives back on track. 

“It’s inspiring stuff, and I’d encourage any young person out there looking for work and needing support to get in contact with Street League.”
