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.
The Youth Sport Trust Premium Membership includes the option of a full day athlete mentor workshop.
