Greenhouse puts inspirational coaches into schools and community clubs to work with 8 to 18 year-olds across 10 areas; Football, basketball, table tennis, volleyball, judo, swimming, drama, multisports for young people with special educational needs, tennis and athletics.
The coaches run full-time programmes, working with the young people before, during and after school and in the holidays. This means they can intensely engage the young people over long periods of time and for a number of years as they move through the school.
Our programmes are open to everyone but the coaches also target young people most in need of support, such as those struggling with their education or behaviour. They set high expectations of self discipline, attitude and time keeping.
Through this the coaches try to deliver three major outcomes;
- Improved effort with their education, leading to better educational achievement
- Improved engagement with their community (avoiding negative influences such as crime, drugs, anti-social behaviour)
- Improved health and wellbeing (a reduction in obesity, better health and happiness)
All our coaches are specialists in their fields and include current and former Olympians, Commonwealth and national champions.
