Celtic FC Foundation’s Cashback Gateway to Employment project works with young people who are at risk of offending or re-offending, teaching personal development, workplace skills and mentoring and ultimately moving participants into training, further education and jobs.

In this video, Brendan Rodgers meets Patrick, a recent graduate of the project, whose hard work and dedication impressed the team at the Foundation so much that he was successful in gaining employment as a Community Coach here in 2016.  In discussion with the manager, he talks about the impact that this journey has had on his life.
