Who are you?

    We are thrilled to announce an exciting pilot project between The Phoenix Link Program (PLP) and Sportworks UK, a renowned UK-based company with over 14 years of experience in developing impactful community programs through sport.



    Sportworks UK specialises in designing community programs that leverage the power of sports to engage diverse population groups, enhancing both health and education outcomes. With a proven track record of success, Sportworks UK is dedicated to making a positive difference in communities worldwide.

    The pilot project will be conducted in South Africa, specifically within the townships of Diepsloot and Alexandra, over a period of 10 working days during the winter season of 2024.

    Targeting learners aged between 15-21 years, this initiative aims to empower and uplift communities through sport and education.

    The Program

    Key Features

    Community Leader Training

    Each community will nominate one ‘Community Leader’ to undergo tutor training conducted by Sportworks UK staff. These leaders will become qualified to tutor Sports Leadership courses at levels 1 and 2.

    Moreover, they will be equipped with the skills to develop new leadership courses within their respective communities.

    Student Engagement

    The pilot will directly engage 25 students from each community (50 in total), who will receive Level 1 qualifications.

    Through a comprehensive training program, students will gain internationally recognised qualifications and be mentored to develop a range of employability skills as part of their learning journey.

    Holistic Training Approach

    Training will encompass a blend of in-class sessions and sporting activities over the course of 10 working days.

    Topics covered will include leadership development, financial literacy, and self-mastery.

    Ongoing Support

    Both tutors and students will receive continuous mentoring and training from Sportworks UK and PLP staff to support their development and ensure the program’s sustainability within each local community.
