Who are Young Ambassadors?


YA webpage 1



The Young Ambassador programme aims to empower and inspire young people to become leaders through sport, to help encourage their inactive peers to become hooked on sport.


There are over 2,800 active Young Ambassadors in schools, colleges and Universities across Wales. The Young Ambassador Programme aims to recruit, train, deploy and celebrate the outstanding individuals who volunteer their time in sport.


The expectation of every Young Ambassador is to:

  • Be the young person's voice for PE and School Sport in their school and community
  • Promote the positive values of sport
  • Be a role model and champion for PE and school sport
  • Increase participation opportunities and healthy lifestyles to help get every child hooked on sport for life


The Young Ambassador programme in Wales is run in partnership between Sport Wales, the Youth Sport Trust and the sport development team in each Local Authority.
