At UKSD our mission is to use sports and movement to educate young people about social issues, to create the next generation of youth leaders through positive community interactions, and to allow the opportunity for teenagers to create the change they want to see in the world.
According to the World Health Organization “currently, 88% of young people globally do not meet the recommended daily physical activity levels.”
That is why we are proud to announce we are partnering with Degree - also known as Rexona, Sure or Shield, depending on where you are in the world - on the Breaking Limits Program in collaboration with Beyond Sport and Coaches Across Continents. This project will equip teachers, mentors, and coaches that work with youth with the knowledge and tools on how to use sport/movement to create social change and increase inclusiveness.
Degree is committed to inspiring confidence in everyone to move more because they believe movement has the power to transform lives. However, research shows not everyone is free to move how they want. Degree is fighting for a world where everyone has the confidence to move how they want by breaking down the limits holding them back. Beyond Sport joined forces with Degree and local sport for development organizations to empower millions of young people across the world with the confidence and opportunity to move more, based on the shared belief that movement transforms lives.
We’re so excited to be partnering with these organizations on this project!
