Youth Engagement through Sport

Sport and physical activity, personal development and raising aspirations programme.

The YES programme aims to introduce young men (13-18 years old) from disadvantaged or underrepresented communities to the concept of Higher Education via a sport and physical activity, personal development and raising aspirations programme.

As part of the YES programme, participants work towards the successful completion of an Ulster University accredited Continuous Personal and Professional Development (CPPD) Module.
