Youth Empowerment Through Sport (YES)

Youth Empowerment Through Sport (YES) is a dynamic programme that actively invests in Not in Education, Employment, or Training (NEET) youth by empowering them to go into their communities and become ambassadors of sport and change makers.

Youth leaders are empowered through the programme with the accredited and non-accredited training qualities and characteristics to improve job-readiness and to prepare them for a brighter future.

Participants report an increase in self-confidence and job readiness.  YES leaders feel more empowered to complete tasks, improve their programme delivery and take on more responsibilities. Previous leaders have reported being promoted at their respective programmes.
