Stories from the City features people like James Cooke, 17, a volunteer with Pompey in the Community. He says "I teach young children how to play football, by building their skills and technique and increasing their confidence. It has improved my own confidence massively. The children look up to me, and I can see that I am really influential to them and making a difference to their life."
