The Change Foundation is an award-winning charity that uses sport to change the lives of marginalised young people. They deliver targeted long-term interventions for the most vulnerable young people through Coach Mentors with lived experience, providing regular sport sessions, personalised mentoring, and work-related opportunities.
The NFL Foundation UK was excited to co-design a 12-week pilot programme with The Change Foundation to deliver to the young people. Following NFL Flag coaching, The Change Foundation were able to adapt and engage with over 75 young women across London and provide the opportunity to be interactive, engaging though a new sport, and create a stronger community. The young women involved formed a strong network, were able to build relationships and talk more openly around Mental Health and Wellness.
