Sports Changes Life Foundation
The Sports Changes Life Foundation was set up to raise the aspirations of young people through sporting excellence,vocational and academic achievement and personal development. They wish to change the lives of disadvantaged and disengaged young people through the medium of sport by building self-belief, achieveing success and shaping a person’s future. With their Victory Scholar Program they have created a unique opportunity that provides student athletes a chance to extend their education to post-graduate level, continue to play the sport they love and allows them to give back to the local community. They aim to help young people who are disadvantaged and at risk throughout Ireland by encouraging and inspiring them through the medium of Sport. Their Victory Scholars show that sport really can change lives.
Victory Scholar program
They currently have 13 Victory Scholars being offered places to continue their education and play the sports they love in Northern Ireland and Ireland.
The Victory Scholar program is now based in six prestigious Universities in Northern Ireland and Ireland including the University of Ulster, NUI Galway, Limerick University, Trinity College Dublin, IT Carlow and Waterford IT.
With their groundbreaking programs of EHOOPS they bring #HOPE to our communities young people who have little to look forward to in life. These young people know more about conflict than friendship and have few or no role models in their lives to help them find #inspiration in their world.
Through the EHOOPS program, currently funded by OFMDFM, they use a healthy mix of sport with practical education, to give these young people a future they can share together.
Their professional team of Victory Scholars and sports mentors deliver one of the most empowering, innovative and inspirational youth engagement programmes that will help motivate young people to a brighter future.
