Swim England Young Event Volunteers Programme

The Swim England Young Event Volunteers programme is new for 2019 and is designed to give young volunteers the chance to develop the necessary experience to volunteer at a National event.

This summer Swim England will be running pilot programmes in the London and North East regions, using the experience and feedback from those involved to develop the programme for its official launch in 2020.

Both regions will be inviting all local club members across the disciplines and individuals who have engaged in their regional young volunteer development programmes.
