More than 100 youngsters will play in the event and for many it will provide a rare stage for competitive football because they do not play for teams in the Island’s junior leagues.
Teams from Heathfield children’s home, Clos Gosset housing estate and Grainville and Haute Vallée schools are among those who have registered to play in the five-a-side tournament, which takes place at Fort Regent starting at noon.
Two events will be held – one for under-18s and one for under-16s.
Each player will receive a medal.
Organisers Carl de Francs (19), Mauricio dos Santos (19), Natalie Dale and Kieran Monet (16) have been attending a 12-week confidence-building course run at Sounds Workshop by the Prince’s Trust for unemployed youngsters aged between 15 and 25.
Some of those attending have been in prison and others are on probation or have been referred by social services or Highlands College.
It is a voluntary course run by the Jersey Youth Service for people who want to be helped to help themselves, say the organisers.
On the course, youths have been applying for jobs, have spent two weeks on work experience, taken part in a 100-foot abseil, raised money for charity and have been on an activities trip to Dartmoor.
