Over the last ten years young people facing disadvantage have received over 27,500 hours of transformational mentoring from Olympic, Paralympic and world class athletes through the Dame Kelly Holmes Trust. Over 4,700 young people have completed one of their transformational programmes and over 240,000 young people have been impacted through their inspirational programmes.
Dame Kelly Holmes Trust achieves this by training and developing world class athletes to deliver personal, social and emotional development programmes for young people facing disadvantage. Through transformational mentoring, young people become empowered to realise the attitudes and behaviours needed to lead a positive life.
Together with the Empowering Enterprise partners, the Trust’s athletes will deliver a bespoke version of their flagship transformational mentoring programme Get on Track.
Get on Track will involve world class athletes working with a group of participants for a sustained period to develop key attitudes, raise aspirations, help them realise their full potential and connect with their community.
