Achievements to date
The Word on the Street (Gravesham) is committed to working alongside children and young people in the Kings Farm and Christian Fields areas of Gravesend. We do this by running weekly after school clubs and youth clubs in term time, as well as helping to create positive opportunities for young people to engage with through the school holiday activity programme. The Kings Youth football project has developed out of this school holiday activity programme, as the young people have been enthusiastic and motivated to take part in all football activities.
Kings Youth currently has two teams and have participated in three tournaments across the South East, including a local tournament in Gravesend. The funding from Kent Trust for Youth Sport will support a youth worker and two young leaders to achieve their FA Level 1 Coaching Qualification, which will enable the project to start delivering coaching sessions for the teams, as well as enabling the teams to attend tournaments in 2015.
