33 young adults have graduated from the Coach Core initiative at a special ceremony at St James Palace that was hosted by Prince Harry.
Coach Core was set up by the Royal Foundation to create a new generation of inspirational sports coaches to be role models and will have life-long commitment to coaching in the community.
The programme targets young people aged 16-24, from disadvantaged backgrounds, at risk of becoming NEET (Not in Education, Employment or Training).
The young adults do a year's apprenticeship where they deliver 1,000 to 1,500 hours of coaching per month in their respective communities.
A total of 42 young people (22 in London and 20 in Glasgow) enrolled on the first two pilots of Coach Core with 33 making it to the graduation ceremony at St James Palace.
Alongside Prince Harry was NBA superstar Carmelo Anthony, who presented the young adults with their certificates.
There are two more Coach Core programmes now up and running as it looks to expand into other sports and parts of the country this year.
