The program is aimed at youngsters of school age who motivate their friends to be physically active and sporty. It launched a few years ago in Wales and is currently experiencing great results. Young people choose a physical activity, that is interesting and entertaining for them, and ambassadors have to make a 10-week program for their peers. One of the most interesting and rewarding successes is "Get in the shape for the prom", but yoga, aerobics, basketball, football, as well as lecture sessions on healthy eating are organized on the basis of the students' interests. Through the program, in addition to the love of physical activity, the young ambassadors are also responsible, co-operative, flexible, organized, confident and other qualities that will be useful to them in future personal and professional development.
