England Manager and former international footballer Gareth Southgate OBE has been a Prince’s Trust Ambassadors for over 15 years. He recently became one of our Goodwill Ambassadors helping to develop, launch and fundraise for our work around leadership and teamwork with our young people.
Leadership and teamwork are essential skills for young people, not only to have an increasing stake in society but also for future emplyment. Future Leaders is a programme from The Prince’s Trust that gives young people the foundations of leadership and teamwork. Open to 18-30-year-olds not in education, training or employment, or who are underemployed, Future Leaders focuses on personal development and finding confidence and leadership from within.
As a leader and manager for the England men’s football team, itself full of leaders, we were delighted to have Prince’s Trust Goodwill Ambassador Gareth Southgate OBE help us to co-create and launch this programme and, in doing so, helping us to equip more young people with the confidence, resilience and self-awareness to succeed.
