  • Give young people a voice in rugby through the Young Rugby Ambassador, National Youth Council and Spirit of Rugby programmes
  • Celebrate young people who are taking a lead in developing youth social action via the RFU Volunteering Recognition and Reward programme and further opportunities. We will also support young people to have a voice in decision making across the game.
  • Act as an ambassador for the #iwill campaign across projects and events to raise the profile of our pledge.

Quote from England Sevens player, Rachael Burford:
“I pledge to create a female rugby academy to help strengthen the growth of the women and girls game. I started rugby aged 6, thanks to my local rugby club where I had lots of playing and training opportunities. The young Rugby Ambassadors have the ability to inspire change in their own community. Young people’s involvement in the decision making process around the shaping of the game is important to ensure our sport is truly accessible for all.”
