Welcome To Our Gifted Community

Our mission is to empower young people and inspire them to use their individual gifts to be better. In order to help youths do this, we have designed a range of different workshops to impact young people of all ages.

WHO ARE WE?

Our team of facilitators are all ex-professional footballers and deliver workshops to pupils and teachers across the UK and internationally.

In addition to delivering educational workshops in schools and colleges, they have also delivered a range of workshops on behalf of The Premier League, Kick It Out, The PFA and Show Racism The Red Card.

Spot The Difference

This workshop is designed to deliver these core values:

  •  Exploring forms of discrimination
  •  Challenging views
  •  Building self-esteem
  •  Recognising differences
  •  Understanding & respecting different cultures
  •  Valuing people who are different to you

 

Ownership Programme

This workshop is designed to deliver these core values:

  • Understanding and taking Ownership
  • Developing teamwork
  • Understanding Intrinsic and External motivation
  • Planning and Preparation
  • Refereeing Small sided matches
  • Working Methodically over a number of weeks
  • Developing confidence

Bodywork

Bodywork is our new health and fitness workshop designed to educate around the obesity epidemic and other health related problems, which plague our young people here in Britain. A number of key factors play a role in contributing to this problem:

  • Easy access to cheap, calorie-rich, nutrient-poor foods and drinks
  • An increasingly sedentary lifestyle, both in parents and children
  • An increasing cultural acceptance that being overweight is “normal”
  • Living in increasingly obesogenic environments (that encourage obesity)

quotes-greyI 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
