Sporting stars turned out to present young people with prizes at an open day.
Sheffield LifeSkills - which helps young people complete courses in everything from beauty to construction so they can find employment with new skills - held the event at its base in the city centre.
Sheffield Wednesday player Liam Palmer, former boxer Ryan Rhodes and speedway racer Simon Stead attended to present Owls shirts to Colleen Barnham and Adam Emerson, who won a raffle.
Around 25 people also attended to find out more about courses on offer at the centre on Carver Street.
Manager Michelle Grainger, who spoke about courses and presented learners with their achievements, said: “Present and past learners were able to talk about their experiences at LifeSkills and how this had helped them personally.”
Sheffield LifeSkills has places left on all its courses for people aged 16 to 18.
