Tigers are recruiting now for the Dynamite Club, a sports-driven education course aimed at 16 to 18-year-olds who are not in education, training or employment.
"This is a great opportunity for young adults to join something positive and make a difference to their life,” says Andy Harston, Tigers education and inclusion officer.
"We are looking to help anyone who needs a boost or a chance to change their life-path, using sports to generate interest, increase individual health and provide a career path for the future."
Supported by Wooden Spoon, Tigers have teamed up with South Leicestershire College for the six-week programme which begins on Tuesday, July 19.
Based at Welford Road stadium, each participant will be fitter, healthier and better prepared for further education or the workplace.
Participants will take part in a challenging programme of sports and core fitness, learning theory and practical skills in a fun and professional environment.
Entrants work towards a set of qualifications including NOCN Level 1 participation in sport, IRB Rugby Ready and Tigers qualifications in health and nutrition, and strength and conditioning.
