The Rio Ferdinand Foundation’s mission is to inspire and enable young people to reach their potential by providing education and employment pathways.
Our vision is to create confident and skilled young people able to tap into their talents to build a brighter future.
We believe with the right support, role models and opportunities, young people can achieve great things.
- To use role models to inspire young people and develop their skills and confidence through education, sports and the arts.
- To work with a network of strategic partners to support young people, act as their mentors, and enable them to access employment opportunities and pathways relevant to their skills and talents.
- To develop young people as peer role models in order to address important personal, social and economic issues, enabling them to build a brighter future for themselves and their communities.
