The Manchester United Foundation
We work in collaboration with The Manchester United Foundation, which provides programmes for our young people both in an out of the Academy. The Foundation uses the passion for Manchester United to engage, inspire and unite young people by delivering educational programmes and opportunities to change lives for the better.
Mr Dearden is our MUFC Foundation coach, he works with staff to deliver curriculum-based sessions and develop students’ physical and life skills, helping them become our future leaders. Mr Dearden has built a structured football programme for both boys and girls which improves sporting performance and helps students into further opportunities.
Staff provide tailored mentoring interventions to individuals and groups to help them realise their true potential, in sport and their school work. Through his role, Mr Dearden allows students the safe space to present their ideas away from the classroom.
Here are some of the Foundation Programmes we already have:
- Leading the Manchester United Way
- Elite Football Coaching for both boys and girls
- Report and Reward Systems
- Business Enterprise
We also have lunch time and after schools clubs, along with regular HUB competitions.
