ABOUT LYG33

LYG33 is an exciting project designed to empower young Londoners, giving them a voice to influence the future of London Youth Games and other key issues impacting young Londoners and sport.

 

Each year, young people aged between 14-21 have the opportunity to join LYG33. Members are selected from a range of different backgrounds to ensure the group is representative of the city’s rich diversity.

 

Members will be given the chance to be spokespeople on the future of sport at London Youth Games and in the capital. They will be representing their borough, giving them the opportunity to play into the leadership of sport for young people in their home communities.

 

London Youth Games want to empower young people and allow their voices to be heard to help shape the future of the Games.
