Set for Success Evaluation

Developing young people’s life skills

Set for Success is a youth leadership initiative that aims to provide young people from disadvantaged backgrounds with the opportunity to develop valuable life and leadership skills through mentoring sessions delivered by inspirational athletes. Set for Success is funded by the Wimbledon Foundation and delivered by the Youth Sport Trust (YST).

Set for Success has delivered a range of benefits for the young people taking part, including:

  • Improved attitudes to, and progress at, school
  • Improved life skills, particularly team-work and resilience
  • A positive impact on future education or job prospects
  • Increased participation in sport and physical activity
  • Improved wellbeing

An evaluation report and a set of school case studies were produced to showcase the work that has been achieved through the programme. You can access the report and case studies on the right-hand side.
