Behind Every Kick aims to combine competitive football (at U16 level) with a creative and exciting off the pitch syllabus incorporating mentoring and working to build self esteem, resilience, time management skills, ambition, commitment and discipline. Every player is matched with a volunteer mentor to support them during an important period of transition in their life.

For the selected mentors we will provide full mentor training and support, along with training from the award-winning Lane4, who specialise in human potential development. The mentors will meet with their mentee at least twice monthly (although they will not be limited to this) and be a positive role model, ensuring that they have the necessary support to make decisions on things such as their future education and employability.

  • Aged 21+
