The KJT Academy seeks to provide opportunities to state-schooled athletes from diverse ethnic communities, enabling them to access support that they have systematically been overlooked before.
In line with KJT's own experience, the KJT Academy will provide guidance and experiences to athletes at a period in their development when they need it most.
It will also provide key support systems, personal mentoring from KJT and Academy days hosted at Liverpool Football Club.
The KJT Academy is looking to support athletes from the North West of England across a broad range of sports. As a World Champion herself KJT is passionate about supporting aspiring World Champions.
