I Have the Power

Targeted at the young people most in need of support following the pandemic, this new youth leadership pilot, funded by Ortus Energy, will use the inspiration of YST’s Athlete Mentors to empower young leaders to improve the wellbeing and sense of belonging of younger students.

I HAVE THE POWER has been co-created with young people to use the inspiration and leadership of YST Athlete Mentors (AMs) to empower Young Leaders to use the positive power of play and sport to improve wellbeing, build friendships, and foster understanding of one another.

During the autumn term 2022 we will be working with 20 schools across the UK to identify their year 7 students most in need of support following the impact of the covid-19 pandemic; and their 13–16-year-old young leaders best able to support them through sport and play.  

Further detail is available in the attached programme guidance document.

Following the pilot phase, we are planning to make I HAVE THE POWER available free of charge to all schools catering for students aged 11 to 16 in England, Scotland and Wales.
