OSCAR has over 100 young leaders, both boys and girls, who through the programme are empowered with skills to give back to their communities. Experience has proven that promoting the value of education through sport has made a significant contribution to social change and the Young Leader’s Programme has noticeably decreased school dropouts. Young Leaders are taught to identify and tackle the barriers preventing children from reaching their potential. Mentoring helps vulnerable youngsters gain confidence and purpose. Each young leader will work with over 30 children every week, for a minimum of three hours, 42 weeks of the year.  Young Leaders will be delivering interactive football and life skills to children ranging from 7 to 16. The children trust the Young Leaders and form new friendships, thus extending their circle of support.  
The Programme creates a network of Young Leaders who are role models. It is these children that need sponsorship.


Event details

Young Leader Sponsorship

Sponsorship of a Young Leader supports not only the individual but also the 30 to 35 children they mentor.
 The donation provides the Young Leader a stipend to spend on college fees, extra tuition, equipment and pocket money. Sponsorship discourages parents from forcing their children to work rather than study. The young leader is expected to budget and with the support of OSCAR staff will learn another valuable life skill. £300 per annum (plus Gift Aid, if eligible) will assure the programme at the heart of OSCAR’s work continues to generate change, providing young people with the skills to support and protect the most vulnerable around them, whilst reducing school dropouts and protecting girls from an early marriage and youth pregnancy. Please show your support by a one off annual payment of £300 or monthly payment of £25.00 
When you make your donation you will receive an email outlining what to do next. If you would like to speak to someone about the scheme please email Thank you.
