Leadership by Streetwise is a unique Sports Leadership programme delivered by Streetwise and the community's sports provider, Maccabi GB. The programme will give participants the skills, experience, and confidence to lead sports sessions, coach teams, run sporting events and lead the community through sport, education and Judaism. Graduates of the programme go on to coach, manage and lead at International Sporting Events, become full time staff, lead on the Leadership weekends, volunteer at community events, sit on our Young Professional Board, work with our partners in the community.
This year Leadership participants will be able to volunteer and be part of the European Maccabi Youth Games in London in July 2024.
Residential Trips - Compulsary
10th – 12th November
15th – 17th March
Please note that these start on Friday afternoon and may require participants to leave school early due to Shabbat timings. School absence letters are available upon request. Due to Shabbat timings and educational benefits of the programme, schools are typically supportive.
Residential Weekends are for participants to learn core leadership skills, develop their confidence, grow friendships, explore Jewish values, and have lots of fun with the support of trained and experienced staff and leadership alumni.
Sunday 23rd June – Maccabi GB Community Fun Run – Compulsory
There will be optional volunteering throughout the year and upon request
Volunteering experiences provide theory and practical leadership training based at different organisations, camps, schemes, residential homes, etc.. we offer the participants specialised training for each particular group and assist them in planning sports activities that they later deliver. There are also opportunities to volunteer within the Maccabi GB offices and events. These volunteering experiences are great to put on CVs and to talk about in interviews.
Leadership participants will be able to volunteer at the EMYG 2024.
Optional National Accreditation by Sports Leaders UK
To gain the SLUK awards/qualifications, the participants must complete a coursework style booklet, certain amount of volunteering hours, and submit it by a specific deadline. We understand that not everyone that wants to take part in Leadership, wants the award too, so we have decided to give it as an option. All curriculum time and content will be the same for everyone but it is down to the individual participant to complete their volunteering hours and booklet in their own time. It will cost an extra £25 per participant.
