Teaching young people how to use sport for the good of their communities is one of the most important things Laureus does around the world. And one of the most exciting ways this is now being achieved is through the Laureus YES programme.
The name stands for Youth Empowerment through Sports and is a course for young people from community sports organisations to become the future leaders of the sport for good movement. Luke was one 40 youngsters who was chosen to benefit from IT skills sessions, education in the social and psychological aspects of sport and, crucially, even lessons in how to run their own sport for good projects focusing on subjects like fundraising and marketing.
Our congratulations to Luke!
