North East Young Volunteers at UK Schools Games

This is the first time British Cycling has recruited for the role of Team Attaché from the BC Young Volunteers Programme, Cycling Award for Young Volunteers.

Two of our young volunteers from the region have been successful in their application for this role.

Laura Kotch (18) Stockton Wheelers

Josh Parker (18) Gosforth Road Club

Laura will be working with the team from the South West region.

Laura has been a young volunteer with Stockton Wheelers for 2 years at coaching sessions and races. This has included teaching children to ride their bike, bike handling skills and marshalling duties. She has been shortlisted for 2 awards in recognition of her work within the club, 1 from Stockton Council and 1 from Catalyst Stockton on Tees. She attended the National Young Officials Academy at
Loughborough University in December 2013.

Josh will be working with the team from the North East region.

Josh started volunteering 2 years ago when he stopped racing time trials due to injury. Josh represents the youth within Gosforth Road Club at meetings, he set up the club Facebook page and organises the sale of club kit. Josh was awarded the Young Volunteer of the Year (North East region) in 2013 and is 1 of 12 young people who sits on the National Youth Forum. Most recently Josh has been volunteering at the Commonwealth Games in Glasgow as a field of play member of the triathlon.

This is a fantastic opportunity for Laura and Josh to further their knowledge of working at a National event. They will have to opportunity to attend workshops prior to the games starting, which will cover a number of topics including Event Management and Volunteer Development. They will then work with their region to assist the Team Manager in all organisational aspects of the event.

We wish them both the best of luck in this venture and look forward to hearing how they have got on.
