What we've been up to this month:

With the World Cup just around the corner, we thought we would tell you about a recent trip for some of our young people. Last month, participants from one of our TEENS projects were invited to take part in a regional football tournament featuring developmental teams from Premier League and Championship Football Clubs.

The young people acquitted themselves well, eventually getting knocked out at the Quarter Final stage on penalties. They had the opportunity to speak with Aston Villa Legends Tony Morley and Gordan Cowans (pictured), members of Aston Villa’s European Cup winning team of 1982, and had their photo taken with the replica European Cup.

At Sport 4 Life, we believe in a level playing field where young people have the opportunity to create better futures for themselves. Experiences such as these expose young people to new environments and people to help raise their aspirations, stretch them as individuals, and help develop life skills.
