About Us


streetfootballworld is a global NGO that harnesses the power of football to tackle some of the greatest social challenges of our time. The organisation’s work supports an international network of over 120 grassroots organisations that use football as a tool to address deep-rooted community issues, ranging from refugee integration in Ireland to gender equality in Kenya. Collectively, the network empowers more than two million disadvantaged young people per year.


About the Role


Youth unemployment is a massive challenge around the world, limiting opportunities for young people to reach their full potential. Football is being used as a tool to combat this challenge through football-based employability programmes that engage young people, build their soft skills, improve mental and physical health and increase social integration. streetfootballworld is coordinating a number of employability projects together with football for good organisations and other partners.
