The Young Ambassador Programme is a partnership wide initiative which aims to identify and bring together the most talented and committed young leaders from across all NWLSSP Schools to develop, enhance and refine their skills by working alongside other young people and sports professionals.
There are three levels of Young Ambassador:
- Bronze Ambassadors- Year 5-6
- Silver Ambassador- Year 7-9
- Gold Ambassadors- Year 11-13
Young Ambassadors will be expected to:
- Be the youth voice for PE and School Sport in their school and community
- Promote the positive Values of Sport
- Be a role model and champion for PE and School Sport
- Increase participation opportunities and healthy lifestyles for everyone
Selected Young Ambassadors will be able to develop their CV by accessing support and training related to coaching, officiating and event volunteering. They will also act as role models and ambassadors in their own schools/colleges.
