We aspire to see a generation of young people who will reach their God given potential; where communities have been socially impacted; and where spiritual change has transformed a nation. Our mission is to transform young people’s lives, with God’s love, through sport and support. We do this through values-driven physical education, street dance, mentoring, chaplaincy in schools and community KICK Academies. KICK are currently working with over 100 schools and have established 30 KICK Academies. Our staff team has more than doubled over the last 2 years with KICK now employing over 90 staff. As an organisation we are engaging with over 27,000 young people every week and come closer to achieving our mission as we reach more and more young people.
