Our work

YST Our Work
Our values of trust, responsibility, integrity and partnership working guide the way we fulfil our mission. We put young people at the heart of everything we do and aim for our work to achieve far-reaching and lasting change.

Our partnership approach involves collaborating across the worlds of education, sport, health and the youth sector as well as working alongside dozens of strategic, corporate and delivery partners. 

This spirit of collaboration amplifies our reach, allowing us to achieve more with less and maximise the positive impact that we and our partners can have on young people's lives.

What we do:

  • Develop innovative resources, training, professional development modules and programmes to support young people in PE and sport
  • Deliver high quality events, programmes, activities, camps and experiences for young people and their wider support base such as parents and carers, teachers and coaches
  • Disrupt and challenge convention where there are opportunities to improve the provision, quality and approach of using sport, PE and physical activity to improve young people's lives.
