Greenhouse empowers young people in London’s most disadvantaged communities to realise their potential through high quality, intensive sport and performing arts programmes delivered by inspirational coaches.
By working full time in schools and in the community Greenhouse coaches develop strong relationships with our young people. They help them to improve their health and fitness whilst mentoring them to improve their engagement with their education and community.
Greenhouse runs 49 programmes across London, working with between 7,500 and 10,000 young people on a weekly basis.
The football arm has 540 members and 26 teams are being coached by former players. Players are assessed on attendance, time keeping, attitude and effort rather than ability promoting the three targets of the coaching:
1. – Improved effort in education and through this improved achievement
2. – Improved positive engagement within the community
3. – Improved health and wellbeing
