Beyond Sport Young Ambassadors

In every city where we hold an event, we select outstanding young individuals who have become leaders through sport.

 

In 2012, Beyond Sport set out to give young people a formal place in the movement of sport and social change – a place where they can advise, participate, and benefit from Beyond Sport’s major global gatherings and year-round by meeting each other and exchanging ideas, challenges and opinions about social issues. These are all young people that have faced adversity but due to love of sport, they have all come through to become incredible young leaders. All of this is an effort to further development these young people’s careers and create a platform for them to further develop using the power of sport.

Eight young people were selected from sport for development programmes based in London.

The Young Ambassadors from London are:

They each have varying backgrounds and stories from young offenders, Afghan refugees, obesity issues, strict religious upbringings and the issues that excluded them from society. The one thing they all have in common is their love for sport. They are all now powerful young leaders in their local communities using sport to change other peoples lives.

The Young Ambassadors from New York are:

They again, each have varying background but sport has supported them to develop as young human beings. This has given them the opportunity to have an impact in other people’s lives far beyond the initial participation they once in sport.
