Sport clubs in the UK are run by all sorts of people. Whether they’re coaching the team, counting the membership forms or making the sandwiches, they all have one thing in common: they’re volunteers. In fact, sports volunteering is the largest single volunteering sector in the UK, with 6.2 million sports volunteers being active each year.

Established in 2007, the StreetGames Young Volunteer (SYV) programme creates opportunities for volunteers aged 16-25 to give back to their local communities, whilst also improving their core life skills - skills such as organisation, leadership, teamworking and coaching.
