Street Elite is a nine-month coaching and mentoring programme delivered by The Change Foundation. It is aimed at young people who are impacted by violence, crime and inequality, helping them to re-engage with employment, education or training.

We have been supporting Street Elite since 2013. Over 100 young people take part each year, and on average over 80% of them transition into work or education. 

Over half of the coaches who delivered Street Elite in 2022/23 have come through the programme themselves, making them ideal role models and mentors for the young people involved.

We’ve worked with The Change Foundation to produce a toolkit for employers, sharing what we’ve learnt about working with young people who face additional barrier to work.
