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 around 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.
