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

Due to Set for Success’s ongoing success, the project has been extended by the Wimbledon Foundation in partnership with Barclays, to further increase the reach over the next four years to 150 schools across the UK, engaging up to 3,900 young people.

Evaluation reports and school case studies were produced over the last four years to showcase the work that has been achieved through the programme. You can access and download these on the right-hand side.
