Boots and Beats

Young leaders in Manchester have been working hard for the past two years to engage over 500 young people through their passion for football and music. 

However, the youth unemployment rate among 16 to 24-year-olds in Manchester stands at over 22% so Boots & Beats returned for a third year to continue to reach out to even more young people and connect them with job related training, volunteering opportunities and employee mentoring from our partner SAP.

Roosevelt, 19, has been with the project since it began. “I started as a participant and in the last two years I have been able to gain a lot of training and experience. With that, I am now leading sessions and inspiring young people with the two things I love, football and music.”

This project is delivered in partnership with Greater Manchester Youth Network and City in the Community, and generously supported by SAP.
