Young Ambassador Programme
The Young Ambassador Programme is one of Active Schools main flagship programmes. Selected pupils from all our secondary schools receive comprehensive leadership experience within sport, education & community settings. Young Ambassadors gain a vast range of skills based on the ever-important promotion, motivation and inspiration for young people in sport. Ambassadors work alongside their Active Schools Coordinator where they will receive support and guidance throughout their role allowing them to gain new skills and experiences whilst making a difference in their local school and community.
Young Ambassadors gain valuable life skills such as communication, organisation and teamwork, both through strategic and operational roles. All Young Ambassadors sign up to the Saltire Award, which is a nationally recognised awarding body for volunteering hours. Using this approach is an opportunity to evidence all of their fantastic work when applying for further education and future employment.
