Start your future at Street League
The skills needed to succeed in real life and work are often different from those taught in exams and classrooms. While traditional schooling and exams are the most common way to begin your career, they are not the only route. We believe that your future can be made outside the classroom. We want to share real-life advice from people who've been there, done that, and got the t-shirt to show that there are many ways to achieve your goals. We helped 1,979 young people into work, apprenticeships and training last year - YOU could be next!

How we helped Sam find a great job
Sam's confidence had been knocked as she was looking for work but didn't feel she was making progress. She started questioning her skills and abilities and was left confused and deflated.
After meeting Street League’s Outreach Coordinator, Sam joined a programme. At first, she was very quiet and reserved, but as the weeks went by started to build her confidence; making new friends, taking a lead during activities and working hard on her communication and interview techniques.Sam, Manchester
Helping Raheal follow his dream of a career in sport
Raheal was unemployed when he came to Street League. He was struggling with motivation and finding it hard to keep a daily routine. This meant he found it difficult to look for jobs and opportunities.
Raheal is a talented footballer and staff were quick to notice this and encourage him.Raheal, Edinburgh
