The Children's Coaching Collaborative (CCC) are committed to respecting and promoting the rights of children and young people in sport. We want to ensure that youth voice is heard in every area of CCC work, we are therefore working towards embedding youth voice in this movement.
We are in the early stages of creating a youth voice mechanism and we are in a fortunate position of having some experienced partners who have successfully embedded this within their organisations:
What does youth voice mean to you?
Youth board members from Youth Sport Trust share their thoughts and feelings on this topic.
Youth Voice Resources
Professor Laura Lundy created the Lundy Model which is a framework which coaches can use to encourage participation in children and young people.
The CCC are using this model to develop their youth voice mechanism as it is a great guide on how to engage young people in a meaningful way.
If you are keen to embed youth voice in your organisation this model is a good place to start.
Our partner UNICEF UK have a number of resources on youth participation in different settings.READ MORE
