Ambassador and Mentor Programme
Archery in the UK is powered by volunteers within our network of clubs and it is these people that make the archery experience so great for all those involved. We are therefore seeking interest from a wide variety of volunteers to become Young Ambassadors (aged between 11 – 24 years), Club Ambassadors and Mentors.
You will need to have a passion for the sport and a desire to share that passion and help others to enjoy the benefits of archery. These are some of the ways you can help your club develop. You don’t have to do everything, just choose activities that suit your time availability: –
- Club Development: Understand the needs of all club members through surveys/feedback and organise appropriate activities for different types of members.
- Support: Ensure new and existing members have access to everything they need by being a point of contact or attending club activities.
- Campaigning: Raise awareness of archery within the local community e.g. school/club Links, Big Weekend, Have a Go sessions and link with other local archery clubs. Also share your stories within Archery GB’s marketing materials!
- Archery GB Courses, Competitions and Events: Help Archery GB promote, organise and deliver courses, workshops, competitions and events.
- Volunteer Support: Help clubs recruit, retain, support, recognise and reward volunteers.
We will provide a programme of training, mentored support, resources and opportunities to work together as a group to ensure you have everything you need to fulfil your role.
