Active Talent: opportunity for community youth organisations in London

A call for applications to contribute to delivery of Active Talent, a 12-month staged programme providing training, development and activation opportunities for at-risk 16-24 year olds with leadership potential in the community sport workforce. Deadline 14 February 2020.

London Youth, specifically the sports development team, has successfully applied to the Greater London Authority and London Sport to deliver the Young Leaders strand of their community sport workforce programme. This is part of Sport Unites, the Mayor of London’s £8.8m community sport investment programme. The Young Leaders strand has three overall aims:

  1. To identify and engage at-risk young Londoners with leadership potential in the community sport workforce
  2. Working with these individuals to improve their understanding of and ability to use sport as a tool for social integration, as well as to benefit Londoners’ physical and mental health through sport and physical activity interventions
  3. Enabling and supporting these individuals to go on and be active within their communities as part of London’s community sport workforce – paid and volunteer, traditional and non-traditional

Our approach – Active Talent

To work with, and through, 15 community youth organisations (London Youth members) to engage 150 at-risk young people aged 16-24 with leadership potential (10 per organisation). Working in three clusters, Active Talent is a 12-month, staged programme providing training, development and activation opportunities from March 2020 – March 2021.
