Our Leadership Program

Our Youth Connect Leadership supports young people aged 13 to 20 years to reach their goals by linking them to a variety of opportunities within the sport and recreation field.

We invite any motivated young people who are interested in sports and recreation to become youth ambassadors; this provides them with refereeing course, events, seminars and volunteering opportunities.
