VOLUNTEERING & MENTORING
Each young person is expected to complete a minimum of three hours of volunteering each week. This is often supporting the delivery of sessions or officiating matches for younger pupils at the education site which they are enrolled at. Young people are also given the opportunity to volunteer at Kinetic Community sessions which starts them on the process of gaining the coaching qualifications – Kinetic Foundation support the financial cost of these. Some individuals take this volunteering further and secure funding, through Kinetic Foundation, to run specific community sessions in their local community and we champion these entrepreneurial endeavors.
Each educational site nominates an individual to represent their views on our Kinetic Youth Forum which reports to staff quarterly.
Through our partners the young people are mentored by an industry professional based on their career plan. This mentor helps guide the individual to complete relevant work experience, additional courses or internships in a bid for them to be successful for a career outside football.
