GamesForce Teams offers London Schools/Colleges & groups the opportunity to volunteer at the London Youth Games, part of the School Games. Team opportunities consist of 6 young people aged 14+ in a group and a responsible adult/teacher.

Last year, over 80 teams from across London volunteered in a variety of roles, such as physical activity leaders, event coordination assistants and ceremonies coordinators. GamesForce Teams offers schools a wonderful opportunity to get involved with the volunteer arm of the London Youth Games, learn new skills and have fun!
