Chance to Shine Youth Social Action Programmes 2021-2022 for Young People in America

We want to give young people the opportunity to learn and develop through cricket. We are testing three Youth Social Action programmes during 2021-2022. Each programme will help young people aged 13 to 24 learn new skills and knowledge on topics that are important to them, like leadership, mental health and the fundamentals of coaching.

The Youth Social Action programmes are open for applications from 19 May to 14 June 2021

  • NextGen: developing the next generation of leaders and coaches. You will learn about sport for social change, leadership, coaching and community sport
  • Community Voices: supporting young people to have a voice and an impact on issues that are important to them. You will learn about topical issues like mental health, diversity, equity and inclusion, or the environment, as well as how you can do something about it
  • Youth Advisory Board: creating the first ever Chance to Shine youth board that represents young people in the charity’s work. You will learn about leadership, decision making, the process of running a charity and more, as well as shape the way in which Chance to Shine supports young people to play, learn and develop through cricket.
