Project and event management for the Youth Sport Trust
The Youth Sport Trust works with the Football Association to drive girls’ football participation in schools. Barclays Game On – GO Lead trains girls to become girls football deliverers or marketeers to engage more girls in football in their schools.
At a key point in the project, they found themselves with a key staff member due to be responsible for the project leaving the organisation for a new role, resulting in a gap whilst their replacement was appointed.
The Youth Sport Trust appointed Sport Sister to manage the project and its launch event during the interim period between staff recruitment. This included:
Management of communications with schools, teacher briefings and website updates.
Event management of the GO Lead Inspire Live Launch, a live stream event for schools and girls football activators.
Coordination of guest presenters, special guests, and production company.
Production of risk assessment and safeguarding documentation to ensure adherence to safeguarding procedures throughout.
Ensured the project could continue on time and as planned
All deadlines achieved as promised
Inspire Live Launch delivered to network of schools and their girls football activators
Effective handover of the project to a newly appointed member of Youth Sport Trust staff
Integration with wider girls’ schools football programmes
