The Youth Sport Trust (YST) are looking for motivated and enthusiastic students, who have a passion for sport and working with young people, to join them as a YST Team Leader.
The programme has been running for over 10 years and provides students with great exposure to the world of sports development, whilst helping them to progress and improve both personally and professionally.
It is an ideal opportunity for second year students from any degree, not just sport, to become a YST Team Leader.
The role varies at each event or camp allowing students to develop and progress and experience a range of sport development initiatives.
Over the duration of the programme, every team leader will take on the responsibility of leading a group of young people, facilitating and delivering workshops, guiding and supporting groups in sessions delivered by National Governing Bodies, YST staff and national consultants, as well as providing an inclusive and motivating environment in which the exceptional young people attending camps can thrive in.
YST events involve disabled and non-disabled leaders, promising young coaches, talented athletes and young sports volunteers. In addition, one opportunity will involve working with a team of volunteers, some of whom will be over the age of 19.
Former Team Leaders have gone on to careers with National Governing Bodies, LOCOG, YST and local sport development bodies. The programme runs for two years and in the second year Team Leaders are invited, subject to performance and commitment in year one, to take on a mentor role for new the new intake of Leaders.
