Project Introduction

One of the main aims of the European Athletics Young Leaders Community is to encourage community members to plan and deliver their own athletics-related projects. Projects allow you to be creative and give you control over the work you do, how you do it and whom you work with.

But just as important a project can be fun and bring many benefits to you as a project leader or team member. These include:

  • A valuable accomplishment and experience to put on your Curriculum Vitae
  • Leadership and team working skills
  • Other work-related skills such as planning, budgeting, coordinating, reporting, etc.
  • Sport, business and civil society contacts
  • New or deeper friendships
  • Recognition within your local community and the European Athletics Young Leaders Community
  • A strong sense of accomplishment

For the purposes of the European Athletics Young Leaders Community, a project is an athletics-related activity that you plan and implement, either by yourself or with a team of others.

If you are involved or planning to be involved in a project that promotes athletics, we want to know about it, offer our support and show you the sport’s appreciation.

Project support & recognition

We can offer project leaders and teams the following forms of support:

  • A database of projects and projects ideas
    See "What you can do?" Box on this page

  • A list of contacts who will support project teams
    Browse Partners

  • Project planning guidelines and tools
    Browse Guidelines

To motivate and reward our active members we offer recognition that is backed by European Athletics for completed projects.
