Of young people feel more confident about themselves
PL Kicks aims to inspire children and young people to achieve their potential and improve their wellbeing; working together to build stronger, safer and more inclusive communities.
Kicks is the Premier League’s flagship community programme which is designed to engage young people aged 8-18 years old, of all backgrounds and abilities with football, sport and personal development activities across Watford, Harrow and Hillingdon.
The project aims to:
Increase playing, coaching and officiating opportunities in football and a range of sports
Enhance physical and mental wellbeing, including self-esteem, ambition and social skills
Strengthen communities with a culture of volunteering, social action and positive role models – supporting education, training and employment pathways
Work in partnership with young people, the police and other stakeholders to support the younger generation with the societal challenges they face (e.g. youth violence) and to improve community safety
Inspire young people to develop positive, supportive relationships with one another and the authorities
Promote integration and champion equality, diversity and inclusion
