Young Volunteers

​Young Volunteers in Football

Looking to get involved in local volunteering? Want to learn leadership skills? Grassroots football relies on young volunteers to work within clubs, leagues and teams so will often support volunteers with training to help protect the future of grassroots football.

Football Futures

The Cornwall FA Football Futures programme is an excellent opportunity for young people to gain further knowledge and insight into various roles within football and can offer the start of a great adventure through volunteering in sport.

The Cornwall FA Football Futures programme is intended to support young people interested in volunteering in football by rewarding them for their volunteering and providing opportunities for them to receive training, gain experience and meet other young volunteers in the game.

As well as opportunities throughout the season we host a Camp each season inviting all our student along to try out different workshops and activities throughout the day. This also gives them an chance to meet the other like-minded young people who are also trying to make a difference in grassroots football.

Youth Council

Our Youth Council is driven by volunteers aged 16-25 who really want to help us make a difference to football in Cornwall. They are working to achieve this through a range of projects, working with clubs and other volunteers, supporting at local footballing events and delivering programmes to the Football Futures group. If you would like to get involved there are always opportunities to join the team.

The camp brings together a large group of Young Leaders from across the county to experience a series of workshops covering a variety of football themes such as Futsal and refereeing. Following the county camp, Young Leaders are selected from the attendees to represent Cornwall at The FA’s national Football Futures Camp.
