This is a volunteering project that UCL Lightning is organising with UCL Academy to introduce cheerleading to children from Yr7-Yr10. We want to give children the opportunity to discover cheerleading at a young age, considering it is a very expensive sport. Wouldn't we all had loved to start cheer much earlier!!

We will be offering weekly afternoon classes to UCL Academy students from January until March. This will be an amazing opportunity for all involved to gain experience in teaching and working with children, which can enhance their CV and give relevant experiences to talk about during interviews, as volunteering has become an important part of our daily life.

(Volunteers can potentially get a Level 2 cheerleading qualification too).

We encourage you to sign up as it will be a great and fun experience for all. You can also gain many transferable skills, whilst giving back to the community and helping others get into cheer, a sport that we all love, at a younger age.


Please note this volunteering project is open to members of UCL Cheerleading Club only - UCL Lightning. All participants must be current UCL students.
