The Young Pro Programme
Young Pro offers a bespoke employability programme to young talent from diverse backgrounds. This programme provides an opportunity for our young pros to grow as professionals and gain exposure to experts within the football ecosystem. We equip our young pros to be influential figures and difference makers in their field of work.
Our successes include providing talent to Queens Park Rangers FC where our young pros undertook an internship with the Championship club. Following this engagement an offer was made to one of our young pros for further employment.
Partnering with Young Pro
The Young Pro Programme offers football clubs, brands and institutions the ability to tackle one of football’s biggest problems: to provide career and development opportunities for young talent in the game. Our young pros will be deployed with our partners to demonstrate their value in key business areas.
Young Pro has developed a unique pathway that consists of workshops, mentoring and pre-employment training to equip our enrolled youth with vital skills for success. We work with specialists and consultants to prepare our young pros for their respective engagements. Some of the key areas we develop are:
- Stakeholder Management
- Professional Etiquette
- Public Speaking
- Introduction to Finance
- Transferrable skills workshop
Embedded within this approach is our unique conflict resolution programme designed to equip young people with the knowledge and tools to resolve conflict.
