Football Activators training

During the February 2020 Half term school holiday, Vallance in partnership with London Youth and Streetgames took part in the Football Activators course. The course has been developed alongside The FA in order to provide volunteers, young people, youth and community workers with the skills required to deliver activities to young people in their communities. This course explored some familiar and some informal ways that football can be included in the activities that we provide. There were a total of 20 participants which including coaches and young volunteers who are registered for the Future Talent programme and this course was marked as their training.

We are seeking Future Talent

Future Talent is an innovative new response to the lack of a level playing field for young people seeking work in London. The programme is focused on young Londoners from BAME and economically disadvantaged backgrounds that are disproportionately affected by poor job prospects. Vallance is working in partnership with 10 community youth organisations across Newham, Tower Hamlets, Lewisham and Lambeth, and we will support 320 young people aged 14-18 to become more job ready over a two-year period. Our target is to engage with 75% BAME participants; and 75% from a low socio-economic status. Vallance launched the programme at the beginning of January 2020 and have got 20 local young people signe
