Leadership and volunteering activities provide children and young people with the opportunity to develop and enhance new skills that can help later on in life. These transferable skills can include public speaking, teamwork, and organisation. This can help develop a young person’s self-esteem and confidence and have been shown to help young people into employment. Sport relies on approximately 1.5 million volunteers, officials, coaches, administrators and managers to help local clubs and organisations. The impact that volunteers have on sport and to the individuals themselves should never be underestimated or undervalued.
