Beyond Sport Youth Advisory Board

April 22

Beyond Sport Youth Advisory Board

“Young people are the heart of our communities. More than ever before, they are spurring action, using their platforms and influence to create positive change for themselves, their communities and society at large. They are seeking to shape and influence the world that they will inherit. And, we are all about championing that.”
-Fred Turner, Executive Director, Beyond Sport

We know that sport provides a shared language and a unique opportunity when engaging youth – whether that be around the biggest issues of our time, or ultimately, to grow fan and consumer bases. In order to make effective change we must ensure them not only a consistent place at the table where decisions are made, but also that their voices are part of solutions.

That is why, in honor of the International Day of Sport for Development and Peace, we are thrilled to open applications for our first ever Beyond Sport Youth Advisory Board (BYSYAB)! We are searching for passionate young people – aged 18 to 22 – who are using sport with the intention to change lives around the world.
