About Young Ambassadors
"Every child hooked on sport for life" is an aspiration for
Sport Wales. To achieve this it is crucial that a young person
centred approach is adopted.
The young ambassador movement aims to empower and inspire young
people to become role models and leaders through sport, by
developing their confidence and skills in order to increase
physical participation in others.
This approach will empower young people to make their own
decisions through consultation, leadership and ownership.
A young ambassador's role is to:
- Increase healthy lifestyles and participation in physical
activity in their school.
- Promote the Olympic and Paralympic Values of Respect,
Friendship, Personal Excellence, Courage, Determination,
Inspiration and Equality through sport.
- Be a role model in advocating PE and school sport.
- To be the young person's voice on PE and school sport in their
schools, sports clubs and communities.
