Our Young Leaders

Our Young Leader programme is an extensive training scheme which follows a detailed mentoring plan along with thorough course work and training in leadership qualities. This allows our young athletes to get vital experience in the gym to prepare them for the working world. Our Young Leaders have been a priceless asset to Citadel since we began and we greatly appreciate the time and effort put in by all our young volunteers.
