Sports & Play Ambassadors Launch Event
Wednesday 2 November @ 6.00pm - 8.00pm GMTFree
If you’re aged 15 – 19 (up to 25 with SEND), come to our Ambassadors launch event at Forest Road Youth Hub on Wednesday 2 November from 6pm to 8pm and find out more about the programme.
Becoming a Sports & Play Ambassador is a great way to get a taste of delivering youth work in your community through an avenue of either playwork or sports.
Ambassadors will be given basic youth work training and work alongside qualified staff to improve confidence and communication skills. The project is a great lead on to an apprenticeship with Hackney Council’s youth work teams.
Volunteer a small amount of time to support sessions, competitions and events, and get rewards such as trips, meals and more as well receiving qualifications and on occasion vouchers as payment.
Last year we took 20 young people to North Wales for a week for free to take part in adventurous outdoor activities – they bonded as a team, made friends and learnt valuable life skills alongside some youth work training. The young people involved then offered some of their free time to support our school holiday activities.
If this is something that you may be interested in, please attend the launch event where we can answer any further questions that you may have.
