Volunteers Required LEAD 2014
The University of St Andrews is hosting a LEAD 2014 conference for young people on Tuesday 11th of March. The conference is aimed at developing the leadership skills and harnessing the enthusiasm of young Scots in the build up to the Glasgow 2014 Commonwealth Games. The programme invites every secondary school in Scotland to send a selection of young people to take part in the conference. The conference will see university students lead workshops on event management to inspire the younger students to subsequently organise and deliver Glasgow 2014 Commonwealth Games themed sports festivals within their own school community. Closely linked to existing leadership work in schools, Lead 2014 will encourage Scottish support for the Games while giving young people a unique opportunity to develop and enhance their leadership skills.

We are looking for approximately 20 student volunteers to lead the conference and teach the school children all of the skills that they require to run their own sporting events. If you want to be one of the volunteers and help on this exciting initiative then please register an interest with Gary Brankin

All volunteers must be available to attend a training weekend, held in St Andrews, on the 1st and 2nd of March
