Pro Touch SA, formally known as Pro Touch Soccer Academy, was established back in February 2006. In March 2017, the newly formed Pro Touch SA CIC organisation was re-branded and re-structured as to ensure they deliver the wider community needs and services through various pro-active and targeted activities, programmes, projects, and events both locally and nationally occasionally.
Their aim is to help, support and encourage potential children and young people 4 – 25 to fulfil their dreams in achieving their set goals whatever that may be. They also wish to engage with the wider community and families, who need the support and guidance through personal or family hardship and may be socially excluded in society through no fault their own such as race, religious, disabilities or social background.
Pro Touch SA organisations also want to highlight the issue of increasing youth and sports participation among those who may not have access to, or interest in, a team or individual activity.
Pro Touch SA target group is children and young people between 4-25 years who live or study within London boroughs including Barnet, Brent, Camden, City of Westminster, Enfield, Ealing, Hackney, Haringey, Islington, Lambeth, Newham, Southwark and Tower Hamlets just to name a few.
Their youth workers, sports coaches and management staff and volunteers work with representatives from local schools, youth, and community organisations – teachers, mentors, and youth workers – to recruit young people for both sports academy and community engagement programmes.
