Life Skills

How we are achieving our mission to strengthen the life skills and build character traits of young people of all abilities through the power of PE and school sport
How we work - Solutions - Young Ambassadors

In the 2015/16 academic year to date (Sep-Mar) the Youth Sport Trust's impact in this area has been:

  • 93% of young people on the YST Alumni panel believe their involvement with the YST greatly increased or increased their life skills 
  • 87% of Peer Leaders reported feeling confident to take on new challenges and to try again if they don't get something right the first time, after attending a YA Peer Leader conference
  • After taking part in one of the YST national camps that targeted girls, 75% of girls that attended had increased their confidence in leading and influencing their peers and other young people
  • “I feel I’ve really came out of my shell, my confidence used to be so low, I wasn’t a big person for speaking in front of people but now I can. [As] school captain, I had to speak in front of everybody’s parents... without joining Inclusive Futures programme, I don’t think I’d have been able to do it”.  Inclusive Futures Volunteer, Glasgow
