The Apprentice Academy is involved in supporting Ardwick FC, a local youth football side based close to Manchester Centre City. This includes providing sponsorship for two sides, as well as providing support for football summer camps for kids aged 5 to 16. We have also linked Ardwick FC with Medlock Primary School, with the coaches of Ardwick delivering funded football coaching twice a week to girls and boys.
PWG Training is involved in supporting kids to take part in skateboarding at Projekt Skatepark which is a fantastic facility based right under the Mancunian Way by Piccadilly Train Station. This is a weekly session with 10 to 15 kids attending the skate sessions including boys and girls. As part of supporting, PWG has also sponsored two young people including funding for a skateboard, pads and 5 private lessons to help develop their talent.
Cariocca recently came on board as a sponsor of girls climbing. Cariocca were keen to engage with local young people and really bought into supporting girls from Medlock Primary School to take part in weekly sessions enabling the girls to work towards the NICAS award, which is an recognised indoor climbing qualification. The sessions have proved really beneficial in building the girls self-esteem.
