– Sexual reproductive health, HIV awareness and prevention, personal and team leadership.

We do this through developing key life-skills such as:
– Saving and finance, cooking and nutrition, employability and apprenticeship training and through sport!
We reach young people in partnership with schools and community groups. We use sport to deliver much of our work; it improves physical fitness, supports good mental health and builds teamwork skills… and it is fun!
