Jack Marciano, 17, Harris Academy – “The charity has helped me a lot and given me lots of opportunities in coaching”

GMFC have been working closely with Harris Battersea for a number of years running a number of programmes in the school as well as working closely with pupils who have been referred to us by the faculty.

We currently run football sessions for pupils in year 7 through to year 9 every Monday which img_0503offer the Harris pupils opportunities to develop their skills and enjoy their football in a fun, safe and positive environment.

The Harris project gives our newly qualified coaches an opportunity to develop their coaching under the tutelage of James and Errol as part of their own coaching development through the coach mentoring programme.

Pupils involved who show real potential are also signposted to our other GMFC projects such as img_0509Positive Lifestyles, Developing Youth Skills For Work and TIGI work skills program.
