Leadership Programmes

NEW FOR 2021 - Racket Pack Young Leader Award - click to download

Leaders ensure events can be run; KS1 festivals, School Games competitions, participation festivals and 'Come and Try It' events all rely on volunteer leaders. Volunteering has always been about helping others – but it can also help you. There are so many benefits:

  • Try out new types of work
  • Get experience that looks good on your CV
  • Make a difference to the lives of people in your community
  • Learn new skills like leadership, problem solving, and working in a team
  • Improve your confidence, initiative and self -awareness
  • Get training and qualifications
  • Meet new people and make contacts that could lead to offers of paid work
  • Get references to use in job applications
  • Get satisfaction from doing something useful!

As a leader you will use life skills, be a role model and inspire! Children say:

“Leaders make you feel happy because they want you to have a good time”

“The best leaders make sure everyone gets to join in”

And from a Leader:
“Once you volunteer you can see you gain more than you give. You see how much difference you can make”

Get involved – Jump in – It’s worth it. Believe in yourself – believe you can make a difference.
