Young People

Using the badge of Crystal Palace FC as the hook, our objective is to engage and inspire young people to believe in themselves. We do this by combining sport and physical activity with one to one personal development and mentoring provided by top quality coaches and youth workers.

Acknowledged as having some of the best programmes of any Premier or Football League Club in the country, the success of our work depends on the support of a wide range of partners including the Police, Schools, local authorities and housing associations, youth offending teams and of course local communities.

We have big ambitions for the future, particularly for Croydon, our host borough where we want to play a much bigger role. This includes developing our own independently accredited Crystal Palace FC Personal Development Programme to get young people into work and local apprenticeships.
