About GamesForce Teams

GamesForce Teams offer London schools and colleges a fun and engaging way to get involved in the London Youth Games. The opportunity is inclusive of identifying, training and deploying young volunteers for the School Games and Regional Competitions which take place all around the city of London from winter through to summer.
Each team consists of 6 young people aged 14+ and a responsible adult/teacher.
Last year saw over 490 school and college students from across London volunteer as officials, activity leaders and events and ceremony assistants. Over the years GameForce Teams have proven to be unique and rewarding to all volunteers and competitors!
