We deliver Peer Youth Leadership Programmes to young people aged 13+ This programme helps the young people to learn and demonstrate important life skills such as effective communication and organisation. The young people complete a Sports Leaders Level 1 qualification and plan and deliver several community-based projects to help increase their confidence and self esteem and to promote civic pride in their community.
This programme aims to improve the interview skills and employability prospects of young people between the ages of 14 – 17 years of age. It involves young people selecting a local sporting hero of their choice, researching more about this person, contacting this person to arrange an interview, developing and delivering a recorded interview and learning about the various media equipment used.
