Goal Driven CIC
“ Create pathways for young people ”
Goal Driven CIC is committed to removing the barriers that prevent young people from all backgrounds from actively participating in decision-making for their future. To achieve this, they have implemented a range of initiatives and strategies that provide young males with the resources and support they need to engage in decision-making.
Who are Goal Driven CIC?
Goal Driven CIC is an education and sports enterprise helping people reach their highest potential through personal and social development. Goal Driven collaborates with local community support groups, and helps its clients work through challenging life circumstances by delivering life coaching, engaging sports activities, educational presentations, and recreational workshops. The initiative of Goal Driven is aimed at overcoming mental health conditions, offending history, substance misuse, unemployment, immigration hardships, and social exclusion. This project will be based in Nechells. delivering educational workshops alongside sport and physical activity, for males aged 14-17 years old who live in this culturally diverse community. Referrals will come from schools, West Midlands Police, learning providers, and youth groups to help improve:
- Health and nutrition
- Social inclusion
- Law abidance
- Educational attainment and aspirations
- Financial literacy
These children experience social issues either within their household or within their communities and the social issues include:
- Family breakdown
- Long-term unemployment
- Low educational attainment
- Poor mental health
- Poverty (both food poverty and fuel poverty)
Goal Driven intend for the cohort to attain long-term development (emotionally, financially, psychologically, and socially) whilst building on their confidence, their goal setting, and their leadership as a basketball official and referee who can then transition on the pathway onto higher rankings and as mentors to those exploited, or at risk of being exploited, by gang affected lifestyles in Birmingham.
