The National Inclusive Futures leadership camp took place over the weekend of 18th-20th March at Loughborough University. The camp was designed to bring together the best leaders from the 9 host cities throughout Great Britain for a weekend of leadership workshops, personal development and an opportunity to learn off others.
A cohort of 15 leaders from across Leicestershire & Rutland were selected for the camp, including two leadership mentors. The volunteers were mixed into 6 groups representing the Paralympic qualities and were supported by an Athlete Ambassador from the Youth Sport Trust.
Opened and Closed by Baroness Sue Campbell, head of the Youth Sport Trust the weekend saw each volunteer undergo a phenomenal transformation, whether it be in their experiences and knowledge of inclusive sports provision, or simply within their confidence.
At the end of the weekend the Youth Sport Trust gave out 4 awards, with Leicester volunteer Curtis French being named as the volunteer of the weekend. He had been identified to incorporate the values of Inclusive Futures and went above and beyond in his leadership by supporting his fellow volunteers throughout.
All of the Leicester Inclusive Futures volunteers should be very proud of what they’ve achieved over this weekend and of how far they’ve come in such a short space of time.
