Arsenal in the Community is dedicated to improving the lives of our local community through the delivery of various programmes across sports, education, health and social inclusion. These programmes embrace a wide variety of community involvement and they are delivered and received with the same energy and commitment today as when they started over 30 years ago.

Through the Arsenal Gap Programme, volunteers are given the opportunity for a truly unique experience gaining key employability and life skills whilst representing the Club in London and around the world. The basis of the programme follows this structure:

Stage 2 gives our 'Gappers' the opportunity to travel abroad to coach at one of our community programmes around the world for a period of up to 3 months. 'Gappers' also have the choice to remain in London if they do not wish to travel abroad.

Stage 3 (Optional) gives 'Gappers' the chance to undertake a bespoke work programme back in London that allows them to continue their development and supports them towards achieving their next step beyond the programme.
