Training Course for YASV Ambassadors

The Training Course was attended by the team of 5 ambassadors from each country + 4 of the PMT members (1 per country) who lead the training as experts with the representative of BSDA acting also as logistical support person on the spot. The international training of the teams of ambassadors had the aim to fully prepare them for operating on local level during the project duration and afterwards. The teams of young ambassadors had benefit of an international training, delivered by experienced trainers/ experts in the fields of sport, volunteering and youth work. The ambassadors were trained regarding how to use Non Formal education and Education through sport for work with other youth, youngsters with fewer opportunities and NEET etc. In addition the training contained sessions on delivering workshops, principles and values of volunteering in sport, advocacy for sport and volunteering, public speaking etc. This international training activity served as well as a team building practice between the teams of ambassadors, which will be useful for the whole project run. This international reunion allowed to strengthen the collaboration between all participating organizations at all levels and will be a preparation for the project activities to be held on local level in each country. Moreover, this event enhances the peer relations between all ambassadors and the collaborating organizations from the different countries and will allow them to already start sharing best practices and in this way stupport the collaborative process already since the beginning of the project.

About Project

Main Project Aim

YASV wants to promote voluntary activities in sport, together with social inclusion, equal opportunities and awareness of the importance of health-enhancing physical activity through increased participation and equal access to Sport for all.

Why?

The involvement of volunteers in sports is a key factor to the success and long term sustainability of sport clubs, organizations and events. Sport organizations and clubs all over Europe play a crucial role in encouraging and engaging people to get physically active. Unfortunatelty, the level of civic involvement in voluntary activities related to sport is warning. A EU Barometer survey indicates that generally only 7 % of the EU citizens engage in volunteering activities in sport.
