The Sportivate Project for Young People was an 8 weeks course, 2 hours per week, which gave every young person attending the opportunity to gain a Go Lead Sport Leadership Award. Sport offers many entry-level jobs and opportunities for volunteering that can lead to full-time careers. ESN worked with Active Sussex, Hastings Street Sports, Amicus Horizons and Freedom Leisure to offer this opportunity to our Talent Match Young People.
During the 8 weeks the young people participated in different sports from Badminton to Boxing, they also had instruction on how to use gym equipment and how to support other using gym equipment. They also had to design their own fitness program.
At the end of the 8 Weeks a Celebration Event was held at Café in the Park in Hastings.
