We are delighted to support Chance to Shine with the expansion of their Life Skills Education Workshops into London, which uses a fast, fun and flexible version of cricket to allow young people to play, learn and develop through sport.
Our £33,600 grant will enable Chance to Shine to re-launch 52 Street cricket projects in London, which had to close due to the pandemic and will reach 1,500 young people. The workshops will explore the following themes:
* Laying Foundations (confidence, resilience, teamwork, mental health)
* Making Choices (health, aspirations, community cohesion, online safety, gangs)
* Expanding Horizons (creativity & entrepreneurship, financial literacy, goal-setting, employment and training pathways).
We are looking forward to seeing how cricket can reinforce and embed learning, and support young people with their wider social, education, and personal development.
