WHAT is street elite?
Street Elite is delivered by the Change Foundation and the Berkeley Foundation.
Street Elite Academy
Street Elite Academy is a youth development initiative. It uses sport and mentoring to motivate young people at risk of falling out of the education system. The young people learn lessons in teamwork to build their confidence, self-esteem and aspirations. The programme is delivered during the school calendar year for a twelve week period.
This is a new initiative, in its second year, designed to prevent young people slipping into gangs and crime, rather than intervening once they have already done so.
Street Elite Intervention
Street Elite Intervention offers intensive support to those often living on the edge of gangs and criminality, helping them to gain the confidence, qualifications and self-esteem needed to get a job or go on to further and higher education.
So far, after 6 years, 74% of participants have successfully moved into education, training or employment, having delivered regular coaching sessions on housing estates across London.
