It’s been a busy few weeks for Ceredigion Sporting Young Ambassadors.
The Silver Young Ambassadors received training during the October half term holidays in readiness to go back to their schools and clubs to deliver sporting activities. The Active Young People Training involved planning, delivering and evaluating sessions and health and safety.
A very important aspect of the course was Disability Inclusion as all activities offered through Ceredigion Actif are inclusive. There are disabled Young Ambassadors involved with various programmes across the county.
Four Gold Young Ambassadors attended the Wales Gold Young Ambassador Conference at Cardiff City Football Stadium. This was an opportunity for Gold Young Ambassadors from around Wales to come together and plan for the year ahead.
Eddie Roper (Ysgol Bro Pedr), Sioned Rimmer, Dwynwen Davies and Elinor Thomas (all Penweddig Comprehensive School) were able to share their ideas and good practices in Ceredigion as well as receive a motivational speech from World Champion Inline Skater, Jenna Dowing. Osian Davies was involved with the planning and running of the day as part of his role on the National Young Ambassador Steering Group. Osian is a Platinum Young Ambassador for Ceredigion.
Alwyn Davies, Active Young People Manager said, “These were two fantastic opportunities for our Young Sporting Leaders in Ceredigion. They have shown great enthusiasm and motivation to become Young Ambassadors and are developing into confident role models in our schools and our community clubs.”
Councillor Catrin Miles, Cabinet Member with responsibility for Learning Services, Lifelong Learning and Leisure said, “The aim of the training and conference was to enhance confidence in leadership skills of Young Ambassadors around Ceredigion schools. 15 Young Ambassadors attended the Active Young People Training and four Gold Young Ambassadors attended the Gold Young Ambassador National Conference. This is a great opportunity for our young people and I’m very proud of them all.”
