Jade leads by example
 Women's Football News 12 Sep 2009
Young Leader, Jade Haron, hopes to fly the flag for football helpers in the South West of Essex after the Chigwell girl set an example to her peers by completing 25 hours of volunteering as part of the Step into Sport Programme, supported by the Essex County Football Association and the Youth Sport Trust.
Step into Sport focuses on young people aged 14 to 19, giving them opportunities to become involved in leadership and volunteering and encouraging them to continue this into later life. Now Jade, who recently turned 18, hopes to progress to the next landmark as soon as she can. "I'm working towards my 50 hours and have a busy schedule lined-up, including a tournament at the end of September," she highlighted. "I really look up to the England Women's Manager, Hope Powell, who played then went on to manage.
Sport relies on 1.5 million volunteer officials, coaches, administrators and managers and projects like Step into Sport play a major role in supporting their development. The E.C.F.A. sees the enhancement of Young Leaders as a key part of the National Game Strategy and the Association is committed to producing a wide-reaching Young Leadership Programme which also offers rewards and recognition for the work they do. Certificates are awarded for the completion of 10, 25, 50 and 100 hours of assistance, as well as Umbro kit and equipment vouchers, which she will receive shortly.
Jade signed up to the scheme in April 2009 and attended the County Camp at the University of Essex. The Redbridge Ladies player is also keen to extol the merits of the Programme, adding: "Step into Sport has been very interesting and I've loved learning how to improve my sessions. I think it's a great incentive to get something back for the volunteering hours you put in and I would definitely recommend it to any young coach."
The Woodford County High School student was selected to represent Essex at the National Young Leaders' Camp in July and was able to log the hours for workshops she attended. Guiding her towards her various targets has been Dan Bates, ECFA Workforce Development Officer, and he is thrilled with her progress. He stated: "Jade has shown enthusiasm and commitment to volunteering since attending the County Camp and is always willing to help out at events. She is keen to pass on her experiences of the County and National Camps to other Young Leaders and we hope to get her involved in planning and helping to deliver future events."
