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.
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.
Five ambassadors per country are involved in the project promoting the aims of YASV.
