Jack Hunt Launch 2014 Bronze Young Ambassador Programme

Bronze Ambassadors Celebrating

The annual launch conference of the Bronze Ambassador Programme was held on Wednesday 8 October. Primary school Bronze Ambassadors came together from across the Jack Hunt Cluster Sports Partnership to take part in a number of workshops, which included:

  • Understanding the role of the Young Ambassador
  • ‘Taking a Lead role on the delivery of the ‘Legacy Project’ within each of their schools.

Bronze Young Ambassadors work in their school supporting the development of PE and school sport whilst linking  with their local secondary school. 

  • To increase participation in PE, and promote healthy lifestyles in their school.
  • To promote the positive values of sport.
  • To be an ambassador and role model, advocating PE and school sport.
  • To be the young people’s voice on PE and school sport in their school.

Young Ambassadors are the most outstanding sports leaders in schools and are usually selected because of their sporting talent. More importantly they are selected because they have demonstrated exceptional commitment and ability as young leaders or volunteers within their school or even the community. 

The Young Ambassador programme seeks to develop young leaders and volunteers by giving them the responsibility of being an ambassador for PE and school sport. In many schools the role is held in the same esteem as a Head Boy or Head Girl, and the individual will form a vital link between the students and their teachers.

The conference was entirely led by the Jack Hunt School Young Ambassadors. They produced the resources and presentations, competently and confidently led the workshops and will now go off into primary schools to support the work of the Bronze Ambassadors.
