Volunteering / Young Equestrian Leaders Award (YELA)


YELA is an exciting award that has been developed for the British Equestrian Federation (BEF) in consultation with its Member Bodies and supported by Sport England to increase and encourage the number of young people volunteering in the Equestrian industry.

The award launched in 2011 and has over 2800 young people already registered.

The award is open to all young people between the ages of 13 and 25. They must register via the YELA website and their log book will be issued to them. No hours may be back dated. Hours may be counted from volunteering with any centre/event/branch or group affiliated to one (or more) BEF Member Body.

The award runs over three progressive levels. All candidates must start at Bronze which is just 20hrs of volunteering and completion of the assessment questions. Full details of what is required at each level can be found on the YELA website.
