Ellis roped in to train leaders

Banyana Banyana coach Desiree Ellis recently formed part of a motivational team to help train youth leaders across the City.

Ellis, originally from Heideveld, attended the seventh annual Laureus Youth Empowerment through Sport (YES) programme educational training camp at The Team House in Noordhoek last week.

She was one of the Laureus ambassadors, along with others who participated in the five-day residential training workshop, where 20 youngsters were provided with essential tools to assist in making a positive change in their lives.

“What a productive week! We are really excited about this group of young leaders. They showed immense potential and passion as they took to heart every aspect of the training camp. It is important for young people to view their past challenges and current battles as stepping stones in achieving their goals.

“We would like to wish them well and we are certain that they will take the knowledge gained over the last few days and apply it not only for their own personal development, but to further encourage their peers to do the same,” says Jill Benting, YES programme manager.

Launched in 2012, YES focuses on equipping the youth with the technical, vocational and life skills needed to develop sustainable livelihoods.

The programme targets school leavers aged 18 to 25, with particular attention given to young people who are passionate about sport and the upliftment of local communities.

The overriding goal of the programme is to create a critical mass of youth leaders who have the skills to use sport to champion social programmes in their communities with the aim to progress into further education and employment.

YES is based on the belief that young people are the greatest force to bring about social change in other young people and that the youth are potential champions for positive social change, resulting in the youth being able to inspire and motivate their peers to become positive role models.

The training camp hosted in Noordhoek formed part of the first phase of the 2018 YES programme.

The young leaders will now go back to their communities and seek to do good, using the knowledge and tools gained at the training camp to help tackle some of the most pressing issues facing their communities. The group will meet again later in the year to complete the second phase of the programme before finally graduating from the programme by the end of the year.
