Volunteering with Aneurin Leisure: Aled's Story
Aled is 21 years old and in his third year at university studying Sports Coaching. After helping out at PE classes in Abertillery Comprehensive School, Aled joined the volunteering programme with our Inspire Sports Development team.
Within six months he had completed his CSLA Level 2 Award and taken on the responsibility of running two after school clubs.
As a reward for his leadership and organisation skills, Aled was offered a paid coaching position within Aneurin Leisure and made a Gold Ambassador in the Young Ambassador programme, which aims to empower and inspire young people to become leaders through sport.
In addition to these achievements, Aled is now also leading on the Aneurin Leisure Inspire Volunteer or the Year Awards and is the lead member of our six Blaenau Gwent Gold Ambassadors.
Aled said of his experiences; “I feel lucky for the opportunities I have been given, the diversity of the roles I have will benefit my lifelong career plan. Now I am highly motivated, and enjoy the difference I am making to young people as well as gaining experience.”
