YST International

Youth Sport Trust International is a sport for development charity and is the international arm of the Youth Sport Trust. We use the unique power of sport to improve the lives of young people.

For over 20 years, we have worked in some of the poorest areas of the world, tackling poverty, inequality and conflict to bring about effective and sustainable change. We also work closely with partners in Europe and other developed nations.

Our Areas of Work

  • Supporting youth sport leadership through our Beckwith International Leadership Development (BILD) programme
  • Delivering high quality physical education training
  • Promoting empowerment of young women
  • Developing employability skills and improving life chances
  • Improving opportunities for young disabled people to take part in sport
  • Delivering camps that use sport to promote peace and resolve conflict.

Youth Sport Trust International is proud to be a training partner for Nike, supporting their Made to Play and Community Ambassador Programmes in Europe and beyond.

Support YST International

BILD is our flagship programme which has been used to empower young people in Ghana, Tanzania and St Lucia. We are looking to develop a new BILD and this is where we need your help.

With your donations, fundraising and support, you can contribute to our £1million target so we can take our life changing programme to other nations.

Here’s a snapshot of what’s been achieved so far thanks to your support...

  • BILD Ghana has reached 303,000 young people of all economic backgrounds, abilities and genders
  • BILD Tanzania empowered over 1,900 women to take part in sport
  • A total of 20 sports festivals have taken place through the BILD programme, involving a total of 10,523 young people.

These incredible impacts wouldn’t be possible without the amazing support of our donors. Whether you have ran a marathon, fundraised by having a cake sale or just simply donated – your generosity helps us continue to take BILD even further and bring the incredible power of sport to thousands of young people around the world. Thank you.
