Athlete Mentor visits

YST Athlete Mentor Visits
Athlete Mentor visits, now also being delivered virtually, use elite athletes as a vehicle to transform the aspirations of young people.

Since 2003 the Youth Sport Trust has been pioneering the effective and inspirational use of elite athletes in schools. Our team of Athlete Mentors, which includes a host of Olympic, Paralympic, World Championship and Commonwealth medallists, have a wealth of experience providing inspiration through the sharing of their journey and personal stories of struggle and success.

Our world class athletes can help to tackle declining emotional wellbeing and resilience in young people and attitudes to learning.

How it works

The athletes can visit your school to deliver assemblies, workshops and masterclasses working with targeted pupil groups. They can also deliver motivational speeches, host awards ceremonies, events, sports days or provide a taster of a YST Athlete Mentor programme.
