Our Young Leader Award will teach them all of this and more:
Leadership skills
Decision making
Organisational ability
Transferrable skills
A 6-hour programme leading to an award which allows young people to lead teams of younger children with confidence and maturity.

The Young Leader Award is a fun, practical and motivating way to teach leadership skills. We use a range of games and activities, and follow the well-known STEP principle. STEP teaches Young Leaders how to make effective decisions about the Space, Task, Equipment and organisation of People.

There is also the opportunity for them to work on our Activity Holiday Camps for a day to develop their leadership skills in a practical setting.

Let them take the first step towards becoming a good leader in future situations.

The Young Leader Award is for children aged 9 and over and delivered by Harvey Grout. Harvey is the founder of Star Hotshots and trains Reading University students on the primary and secondary degree courses how to deliver Physical Education in schools.
