Young Volunteers

Did you know that 47% of young people's volunteering takes place in sport? These resources should provide some ideas about how equestrian disciplines can encourage and involve more young volunteers.

Step into Sport

Step into Sport (SIS) is one the eight strands of the joint Department of Culture, Media and Sport (DCMS) and Department for Education  and Skills (DfES) Physical Education, School Sport and Club Links (PESSCL) Strategy.

Sports Leaders UK (formerly the British Sports Trust), Sport England and the Youth Sport Trust work jointly on this project, building upon their current work within the area of leadership and volunteering.

SIS has been designed to establish a simple framework of co-ordinated opportunities at a local level, to enable young people to begin and sustain an involvement in leadership and volunteering through sport.

The programme helps provide clear pathways of opportunities to train, support and deploy young people into appropriate, safe and rewarding sports leadership and volunteer activity.
