Fifty Young Ambassadors from six Secondary Schools recently attended Sport Pembrokeshire Young Ambassador training and two successful local athletes were on hand to provide inspiration for the future.

Young Ambassadors is a youth leadership movement aimed at developing future leaders through sport, physical activity and play.

Young Ambassadors will use their role to inspire, influence, lead, and mentor within and across education and communities, to connect and support society to be healthy and active.

Pupils had the opportunity to take part in three workshops hosted at Haverfordwest High VC School – first aid, inclusion awareness and action planning.

The group was joined by Jordan Hart, professional badminton player who delivered an inspiring motivational talk on leadership, and Bleddyn Gibbs, multi Gold Medal winning Special Olympic power lifter.

Young Ambassadors are valued members of the volunteer workforce and are currently involved in supporting events and festivals, and extra-curricular provision within their schools, primary schools and community settings.

This includes supporting Sport Pembrokeshire’s free multisport sessions in Pembroke, Haverfordwest, Milford and Fishguard.

Rominy Colville, Active Young People Co-ordinator, said: “The importance of the Young Ambassador programme to empower and inspire young people to become leaders through sport cannot be over-stated.

“They will have the power to help encourage peers to become hooked on sport, hopefully for life, with all the benefits to health and well-being that brings.

“Thank you to our sponsor Valero for supporting these amazing young people on their sport leadership pathway.”
