Why try them?
Urban sports are becoming more and more popular though there are not many volunteering opportunities within this subculture of sports. Urban sports attract young people from all backgrounds and are accessible to all (you can do them at playground or park for example), as most of these sports activities do not need any equipment (parkour, callisthenics) or they need very little investment.

The United Through Urban Movement project, funded by the Erasmus+ Programme of the European Union, was a project written and lead by us at BAIS and it was targeted to involve youth with disadvantaged – to provide them an opportunity to learn parkour, 3v3 basketball and street workout, volunteering, resume writing, social inclusion through sports and a few more things.
Together with our partners and volunteers we successfully realised an Urban Sport Festival in Malta where more than 160 registrants and 500+ spectators came!

Is volunteering worth it?
Another yes! The UUM volunteers gained valuable knowledge, hands-on experience and forged new relationships thanks to joining this project and investing a bit of their time into it (this was reported by them in their final feedback form!😍).
