Love it Learn it Lead it - Young Leadership Programme

Wiltshire FA is proud to welcome a new, re-branded Young Leadership Programme. If you are aged between 14-25 and Volunteer in football, you can be rewarded for your time and efforts.

This programme has progressed from what was known Nationally as ‘Football Futures’. Whilst the premise of the volunteering programme is similar to its previous name, the change in name was an idea by Wiltshire FA to offer some clarity in the programme’s name which alludes to leadership whilst also becoming relatable to a young volunteers and aiming to encourage new Young Volunteers to sign up to the programme.

We are aware that within our youth & adult clubs there are a large number of young persons who are volunteering their time week in and week out. Whilst it may be recognised by their club and team, their efforts are not currently recognised by the County FA.

With the ‘Love it, Learn it, Lead it - Young Leadership Programme’, Wiltshire FA have set a rewards scale, so the more hours you record, the more rewards you can receive. It’s not just about the tangible rewards either, Wiltshire FA are looking to create a real community for young people, working alongside our partners and established workforce to offer opportunities for this potential community of young volunteers to develop their skills for the season and beyond.

See below table with the thresholds and rewards a young volunteer can receive by signing up to 'Love it, Learn it, Lead it'. The rewards process will start from July 2017.
