I Have A Gift is a charity with a mission to empower young people to harness their gifts and achieve more regardless of their circumstances
Founded by Shola Oyedele & Lionel Morgan, 2 ex-professional footballers, I Have A Gift was initially created out of frustration more than anything as Shola could not find a suitable local charity to volunteer his services after growing up in a deprived environment. He partnered with Lionel who had a similar experience growing up.
I Have A Gift also provides workshops and accredited courses with the chief aim of working with young people to succeed. Mentoring support is also provided to the youths after they have completed their courses to assist them with securing job placements and/or furthering their career progression in the relative completed course.
"I was very impressed with how well the facilitators from I Have a Gift engaged the students in meaningful and reflective discussions. By using visual images, football analogies and physical activities they kept the students who are usually very disruptive, focused and on track.
The facilitators showed the students that can manage their own behaviour and I learnt that as adults we often get involved rather than just allowing a ‘situation’ to play itself out. I would definitely use the team again to work with both students and staff"
