Young Advisors

A group of young people from our youth board went through an application process to become Young Advisors for London Youth.

These young people have each chosen to specialise in a particular area of our governance, and as a result they have paired up to attend our Membership, Finance, and Assurance Committees, and join at least two full trustee board meetings a year.  Whilst in their committees they participate fully and contribute to the discussions and decisions made. They are also regularly mentored by our trustees based on their interests and how they want to develop on the board.

We are dedicated to ensure youth voice is heard at all levels of our organisation and we are continuously reviewing and improving this within our governance.
