Youth Leadership Programme

Develop your leadership skills with Young Hackney. Through the Youth Leadership programme, you can gain accreditation and valuable experience that will make your CV or application to college, university or for an apprenticeship shine.

Sports Ambassadors Programme

The Sports Ambassadors project aims to give young people the opportunity to deliver and coach sports whilst learning youth work techniques.

By taking part you will develop leadership skills and learn how to coach sports sessions with opportunities to volunteer for sports events in the borough and across London.

You can gain accredited coaching qualifications or professional youth work qualifications whilst improving your employability and having fun!

This year’s cohort has already been on a residential trip, organised their own competition event and supported on numerous activities across Hackney.

Is this something that you could step up to? If so find out contact Simon Woods for more information.
