As part of Barclays’ initiative to connect young people with access to employment opportunities and build confidence and interpersonal skills, we partnered with Hong Kong-based charity Changing Young Lives Foundation and New York-based charity Good Shepherd Services to host football coaching sessions with former Premier League stars and current coaches.

In Hong Kong, former Liverpool F.C. playmaker Steve McManaman, alongside a group of professional coaches, led a two-hour session for local children to teach basic football and life skills. Similarly in New Jersey, Tottenham Hotspur coaches conducted drills and taught football techniques with kids from the local area at MetLife Stadium. Both sessions were designed to use the power of sports to help children develop their interpersonal skills.

Barclays and our partnerships with organizations like the Changing Young Lives Foundation and Good Shepherd Services unlock the potential of young people from disadvantaged communities and in doing so transform their lives for the better.

Barclays has ongoing partnerships with both organizations focused primarily on helping young people develop employability skills. “This was a truly once in a lifetime experience for our participants," says Emma Conniff, Corporate Relations Manager at Good Shepherd Services. "The combination of learning skills from experts, being on the field at MetLife Stadium, and being treated as special guests by the MetLife and Barclays staff made for a truly unforgettable day. We are grateful for the experience and to Barclays for providing it.”

Barclays is the “Official Banking Partner” of the Premier League.
