Foundation Celebrates Prince’s Trust Youngsters To Help ‘Get Started’ With Football

Thirteen young people aged between 16-25 have been given a boost to their career prospects thanks to an inspiring initiative led by the Prince’s Trust, in partnership with Newcastle United Foundation

The Magpie’s official charity have been delivering the programme on behalf of leading youth charity The Prince’s Trust, at Gateshead Redheugh FC. The young people, who are all unemployed or not in training or education, are learning about possible careers in sporting coaching and how they can volunteer in their local community to gain coaching experience.

Throughout the week, the group have learned valuable coaching skills from professional coaches at the Foundation, and will know how to deliver safe football sessions for children. They have also gained a Sports Leaders qualification and Emergency First Aid to add to their CV.

All participants complete the course receive three months support from The Prince’s Trust to help them move into education, training or employment. Due to all participants achieving 100% attendance, they were rewarded with a celebration event at St James’ Park as the course came to a close.

Steve Mack, Project Manager said:

“Our staff have been really impressed with the level of commitment from the group. They have been focused and dedicated to pushing themselves.”

Laura Wilson, Project Coordinator commented on the youngster’s dedication:

“Every young person in this group has achieved through football this week, their confidence has grown and proving to themselves that they have the ability to become coaches. “ She said.

“The enthusiasm the group had to learn and participate aided their progression throughout the week to all gain two important qualifications that will help them ‘Get Started’”.

Newcastle United Foundation works in partnership with The Prince’s Trust on a number of initiatives to help disadvantaged young people into employment or training. For more information, contact Steve Mack | steve.mack@nufc.co.uk.
