As part of being a Go-Ride club, we support the notion that all clubs should let their youth riders have a voice. The Cleveland Wheelers fully supports their youth committee and the key members are listed below. Their role is to support the needs of any other youth riders including themselves. If anyone has anything that they would like to put forward, they can contact any of the youth committee about their query, which will then be passed onto a member of the main committee and the matter will be raised in one of their upcoming meetings.
- Paige McLeod – Chairwoman
- Danielle Colmer – Vice Chairwoman
- Niamh Stinton – Spokesperson
Not only will these roles build on leadership and communication skills in a practical environment, but also help towards growth and development. This is a fantastic place to start and it can be further developed through the Cycling Award for Young Volunteers (CAYV) programme run by our governing body, British Cycling. You can work towards a bronze (12 hours), silver (24 hours) or gold (36 hours) award with free branded volunteer clothing, certificates, memberships and even an invitation to be awarded in front of all club volunteers at British Cycling’s annual Go-Ride Conferences. This is an excellent pathway in becoming a young volunteer and opens many doors into coaching and potential work in the outside world!
