  • Youth Activist Academy Applications Open

    Created: 18/01/2019

    LEAP Sports Scotland has launched it's new youth project 'The Youth Activist Academy'. The Academy will welcome 26 young people aged 16-25 through it's doors to train up as LGBTIQ+ sport activists. The young people will take part in a residential in June with speakers and workshops about activism, Football v Homophobia and LGBTIQ+ sports!

    Once the academy participants have completed the residential they will split into peer lead groups and implement community projects that will work towards creating inclusion, participation and visibility for LGBTIQ+ people in sport. Not only will participants graduate as Sport Activists they will also receive a Community Achievement Award.
