    E18HTEEN provides one-to-one mentor support for young people in care/care leavers who are not in education, employment or training. The programme has worked with 160 young people aged 16–19 to date, identified by Local Authority ‘Virtual Schools of Children in Care’, to improve the life chances for one of the most vulnerable groups in society. 

    Delivered by Tottenham Hotspur Foundation in partnership with the Virtual Schools of Looked After Children in Haringey and Enfield, each E18HTEEN participant is given an individually tailored development programme, with free access to training, sports and life skills workshops. E18HTEEN demonstrates how sport coupled with mentor support raises the life chances of children in care and care leavers, instilling positive values and helping our young people develop a sense of pride and identity.

    For these young people, E18HTEEN and their mentor relationship will forever provide a reference point of positive change as they move toward independence and into adulthood.

    This year-long referral programme offers identified young people the opportunity to get one-to-one support from a dedicated Tottenham Hotspur Foundation mentor. The dedicated mentor supports participants to access sports, life-skills workshops, vocational qualifications, further training and employment opportunities of their choice.

    Linking up with existing Tottenham Hotspur Foundation sport, education and employment programmes, the programme signposts individuals on to a tailored programme of activities, including:

    • NVQ in customer service
    • Sport BTEC Level 1 and Level 2
    • Education opportunities
    • Cookery workshops
    • Money management
    • Communication sessions
    • Employability workshops
    • Work experience
    • Variety of sporting opportunities
    • Plus the opportunity to compile an enhanced CV
