Lead your generation

The Youth Sport Trust believes that young people must be at the heart of delivering a meaningful legacy from the London 2012 Olympic and Paralympic Games and as such, we are inviting schools and young people to come together to be part of our legacy commitment, called Lead your generation.

Legacy is about harnessing the enthusiasm generated by London 2012 to improve school policies, systems and opportunities so that young people can activate this new found desire to be involved in PE and school sport.

Have you introduced more competition? Are you training more volunteers? Are you getting more young people active? All you need to do is briefly tell us about the projects and change you have been creating in your school.

Lead your generation - Legacy Summits

The Youth Sport Trust Lead your generation Legacy Summits were a spectacular celebration and a chance for schools to share their London 2012 legacy work.

Three Summits took place at the University of Leeds, Loughborough University and University of East London. Students shared their legacy work through Olympic and Paralympic practical activity and workshops, and also spent time with London 2012 athletes including Team GB Basketball captain, Drew Sullivan, Team GB Hockey bronze medallist, Helen Richardson and Team GB Wheelchair Rugby captain, Steve Brown.
