On Monday, Carl Jenkinson did his bit as an ambassador for Kick It Out’s ‘Next 20’ initiative.

The right-back, who only recently returned from injury, attended a workshop at Copenhagen Primary School, which, oddly enough, isn’t in Copenhagen but King’s Cross.

While there, he took part in helping to spread the message equality to young children. This is what the campaign is all about.

On Kick It Out’s website, it describes the ‘Next 20’ project as follows:

“Kick It Out’s ‘Next 20’ initiative involves 20 young players from across the Premier League, English Football League (EFL) and Women’s Super League, who represent the organisation as ambassadors and help to spread the key messages of equality and inclusion.”

Other Premier League stars helping the movement are Romelu Lukaku and Jack Butland, as well as Arsenal Ladies player, Jordan Nobbs.

It’s a fantastic message and one of the numerous steps that Kick It Out are taking in order to try and minimise discrimination going forward, not just in football but as a whole.

This isn’t the first time Jenks has been involved with the organisation. While on loan at West Ham in 2015, the defender went to a community day with Carlton Cole, where they got to share their thoughts and feelings on discrimination.

It really is an amazing cause and I’m glad Jenks is part of it.
