What is KickOff@3?
A collaborative initiative set up by two passionate men with the goal to inspire, motivate, engage and support young people from all backgrounds through the medium of sport, music and other imaginative ideas.
Founded in 2017, Michael Wallace (left) and Ashley Levien (right) have seen their non-profit organisation grow into an established youth diversion strategy where long lasting relationships between young people and their local police forces are being built.
Who does KickOff@3 impact?
The organisation has gone from strength to strength, positively impacting hundreds of young people across various communities in the UK through its many initiatives, campaigns and workshops. The pair, along with KickOff@’s youth volunteers, ambassadors and partners, work hard to educate young people, diverting vulnerable youth from criminal activity and violence.
Michael and Ashley have also used their platform to proudly raise awareness and funds for a range of charities that promote physical and mental well-being in young people. KickOff@3 aims to see less youth violence and hate crime and an increase in mental health awareness, physical fitness and inclusion in sports across the UK.
