Our Athlete Mentors
The Athlete Mentors can be utilised in two ways, you can either get involved in our highly successful Living For Sport programme or you can arrange a visit to your school for an event or specific mentoring.
Since its launch in 2003, our acclaimed Living For Sport programme has used world class athlete mentors to inspire over half a million young people. The programme has been proven to tackle declining emotional wellbeing and boost confidence and resilience in young people. By helping develop vital character and employability skills it encourages improvement in behaviour and attitude to achieve their personal best in life.
Athlete mentor visits uses elite athletes as a vehicle to transform the aspirations of young people. Using the power of world class athletes can help to tackle declining emotional wellbeing and resilience in young people and improve behaviour and attitudes to raise attainment across the curriculum. The visits can be used to engage your young people, parents or for staff training days to inspire the workforce. The athlete mentors can deliver bespoke interventions through assemblies, workshops and master classes to support a range of whole school outcomes. These include mentoring a specific pupil group, delivering motivational speeches, awards ceremonies or sports day.
