Advert summary:


Fight for Peace combines sport, education and personal development to support young people to reach their full potential. We focus on communities that are affected by crime and violence, and we have been based in Newham east London since 2007.  

We know that sport has the power to change lives and we offer free boxing and martial arts sessions to young people of all abilities aged 7-25 years old. We also know that when you combine sport with personal development, led by passionate and skillful practitioners in a safe and positive environment, it can make a profound transformational impact on individuals, communities and our society.

Fight for Peace’s personal development services include support for young people in education and gaining employment, mentoring to deal with the issues and challenges life presents, and opportunities to build leadership and other vital skills.

Fight for Peace aims to create champions – in the ring and in life. The impact on young people of the work Fight for Peace does comes in the form of improved mental and physical health, and changes in behaviour, relationships and future aspirations. 

We also impact in the building of skills among young people as well as increased access to opportunities and progression in the sporting arena, in employment and education, and leadership positions – at Fight for Peace in the workplace, and in the community.
