The JU:MP Leads programme aims to identify, train and support local young people from the JU:MP LDP areas (see below) to become physical activity leaders (JU:MP Leads) in their community. The aim is to develop dynamic and inspirational local leaders who can be positive peers and contribute to the development of sustainable activity creating an inspirational legacy.
The project will give you the opportunity to gain nationally recognised qualifications in sports and physical activity that will equip you to engage with inactive children and families in informal physical activity.
You will also be provided with the opportunity to be mentored by professional physical activity coaches and facilitators in the wider JU:MP project.
