YDP (Youth Dreams Project) was founded in February 2014 by Luke Kennedy and Luke Steele.


YDP deliver a high level of sports coaching, providing opportunities for as many young people as possible. The YDP staff are incredibly passionate and 100% committed to having a positive impact on every young person they get the opportunity to work with. We believe through our sport, we can build self-esteem, give children an outlet, encourage positive life choices and help them in every possible way to be happy and succeed in life.


Due to a good reputation, YDP has grown rapidly, and we are now working in over 10 schools across the city. We aim to work closely with each school and understand the importance of following safeguarding procedures. To ensure teachers are aware and understand the coaching that is being delivered, lesson plans are provided and we pride ourselves on providing accurate feedback with regards to pupil progress, performance and behavior.
