The ten year anniversary of the Young Ambassadors programme in Wales will be marked at a special event next week organised by Sport Wales and children's charity the Youth Sport Trust.
The Young Ambassador programme aims to empower young people as inspirational role models so that they can encourage their inactive peers to enjoy sport and physical activity.
It is a key area of work for the Youth Sport Trust in Wales with the charity supporting the development of young people's skills and confidence.
Over the past decade, a super squad of around 19,000 Young Ambassadors have taken part in the programme, while thousands more have been inspired by them to participate in sport or start volunteering.
In schools, colleges, universities and communities across Wales, the Young Ambassadors can be spotted every week leading sports sessions, coaching younger pupils, volunteering at events, officiating matches, and generally encouraging others to love sport as much as they do.
There are currently around 4,000 active Young Ambassadors across Wales, ranging from Bronze Young Ambassadors in primary schools, through to Silver, Gold and Platinum Young Ambassadors in secondary schools, colleges, universities and the community.
In a survey of Welsh Young Ambassadors last year, 96% of them said that the programme had given them more confidence, while 98% felt it had improved their leadership skills.
The programme's achievements over the last decade will be celebrated at the 10th National Gold Young Ambassador Conference being held in the Cardiff City Stadium on Friday 8 November.
