In 2023/24, four Regional Young Leader Academies for 13-16 year olds are being delivered across the country in the North, South, East and West.
These Academies aim to equip young leaders with essential skills and knowledge to support delivery in their clubs and community by attending two days of training and completing tasks related to their area of interest as a volunteer.
The young people will be provided with information and training on a variety of volunteering roles within badminton, share learning and become more actively involved in volunteering. They are also encouraged to raise the profile of badminton using the skills they have developed, engage their peers, influence others and seek further opportunities to volunteer.
