Young Ambassadors and Young Leaders

An Ambassador is a diplomat appointed to represent a group of people, they are an official messenger and representative.

Young Ambassadors are the most outstanding sports leaders in school. They are selected due to their sporting talent, and more importantly, due to their exceptional commitment and ability as young leaders or volunteers. The programme seeks to develop young leaders and volunteers further by providing them with the responsibility of being an ambassador for PE and school sport. A Young Ambassador/Young Leaders role is to increase participation and healthy lifestyles, promote the positive values of sport, be a role model in advocating PE and school sport and be the young people's voice on PE and school sport in their schools and communities.

All Young Ambassadors and Young Leaders are responsible for increasing participation, promoting healthy and active lifestyles and promoting the values of Respect, Friendship, Excellence, Courage, Determination, Inspiration and Equality.
