Get On Track


The Get On Track programme Nottingham City Centre is part funded by the European Social Fund (ESF) and Youth Employment Initiative (YEI)

What is Get On Track?

The Dame Kelly Holmes Trust’s Get On Track programme creates stepping stones for young people (aged 16-25) to move towards employment, training, education, volunteering and sports participation.

How does it work?
Olympians, Paralympians and top athletes have experienced the highs and lows of world class competition. They know what it takes to overcome barriers and still have the will to succeed. Athlete mentors inspire young people to improve:
• Confidence and self-belief
• Communication and teamwork skills
• Resilience and future aspirations for life
• Health and wellbeing
