Using sports to support young, vulnerable women to join the workforce

The project

Step Street, a program of the Street League sports association, supports young women in a situation of long-term unemployment through dance classes. These activities allow them to improve their health and professional and social skills.
A full program is available to them:

  • free weekly dance courses
  • group meetings between participatns and facilitators to encourage socializing skills.
  • Skills building classes 4 times per week (math, English, professional skills, personal development, preparation for professional life)
  • Accompaniment of several months after the program to ensure their continued employment.

The partnership with Fondation CHANEL will allow Street League to open 7 Street Step academies by 2020.
