London Youth Games recruiting for 2 new roles
Get involved in the world’s largest and most inclusive city-focused Youth Games
We believe sport is a right for all.
Following the challenging pandemic, the return of Europe’s largest youth multi-sport event has never been more needed.
With 96 competitions taking place across 31 sports, the London Youth Games hosts more activities than the Commonwealth Games, the Paralympic Games and the Winter Olympics. And we do it every year!
In the last 2 years, we reached over 280,000 young people, including 44% ethnically diverse communities and 1,100 young disabled people through our inclusive sports programme.
Next year we’ll go one step further. We’ll host events at world-class venues, such as Queen Elizabeth Olympic Park, to continue to inspire the next sporting generation.
Essentially, to create a Games for everyone.
We’re recruiting for 2 new roles to play a part in this mission.
