Plenty to showcase on World Youth Skills Day

World Youth Skills Day gives the Foundation of Light the opportunity to highlight the great work being done by the young people that we work with.

In the last year, the football clubโ€™s official charity has steered over 2,750 youngsters away from crime and anti-social behaviour through engaging them in alternative activities.

Over 17,000 have also been inspired to make better lifestyle choices through our various programmes.

Teenagers can join in a variety of team building activities through the NCS scheme; they get the chance to learn skills that helps them get involved in social action project that will benefit the community.

Over the last year, our groups have decorated Young Asian Voices Community Centre, helped local foodbanks deliver their parcels, raised money for the Salvation Army through a sleepout and coached young people with autism.

Premier League Kicks are free weekly sessions with constructive activities chosen by the young people involved โ€“ one week we had some very special guests of the four-legged and reptile variety!

The Foundation also runs an anti-social behaviour intervention project YOLO, in partnership withย Northumbria Police and Crime Commissioner, the initiative supportย youngsters who are at risk of slipping into a life of crime and prevents them from becoming involved in anti-social behaviour or serious youth violence.

Keep an eye on the Foundation of Lightโ€™s social channels this World Skills Day as we showcase our projects to help raise awareness about the importance of youngsters developing skills.

Everyone should have the opportunity to discover and develop their talents, to the benefit of both the individuals and their communities.
