During its kick off in April 2022, the Youth Integrity Ambassadors Programme (YIAP programme) welcomed 36 young leaders from all over Europe who enrolled in a two-year educational programme on sport integrity to improve their knowledge and gain new skills on management, digitalisation and European values. Empowered by the YIAP programme, those same youngsters organised local events within their communities and ran national campaigns on the topic of integrity.
The partnership included 9 partners from 7 countries: Swedish Sports Confederation (RF) – coordinator, ENGSO, EUSA Institute, RF-SISU Smaland, Special Olympics Euroasia Foundation, Portuguese Sports Confederation, Lithuanian Union of Sports Federations, OPES Italia and The European Lotteries.
The YIAP programme will officially conclude with the final conference on 27 February 2024, in Malmö, Sweden, hosted by the Swedish Sports Confederation.
*The final conference is free of charge and open to the public. Please note ENGSO or Swedish Sports Confederation do not cover the cost of travel or accommodation.
