YST Conference 2024

Change the score, change their future

Awards Dinner - Tuesday 19 March
Conference - Wednesday 20 March
Telford International Centre

Join us at the Youth Sport Trust Conference 2024, where we delve into the heart of education challenges, aiming to reshape the future of our schools and communities. 

In a landscape marked by persistent absenteeism and escalating behavioural challenges, our conference stands as a beacon of hope. The attainment gap looms large, particularly affecting those in poverty and underserved communities. Now, more than ever, our networks are in urgent need of innovative solutions.

Discover how sport, PE, and play can emerge as powerful catalysts for change. Uncover strategies that not only re-engage young minds but also bridge the gaps that threaten to hold back a generation.

The Youth Sport Trust Conference 2024 is not just an event; it's an unmissable opportunity to be at the forefront of educational transformation. You can watch highlights of last year's event here.
