Ameobi has been linked with a key position with the academy as he works with the juniors.
He told the Evening Chronicle: "The Academy stuff is something I have always done. Even when I was a player I would go down in the afternoons to the Academy.
"If the Academy and club hadn't invested in me I wouldn't be where I am.
"It has always been a passion of mine.
"The Foundation too, is all about the community and what we can do."
