28 July 2022

Are you passionate about ensuring young people’s voices are heard? Then come join London Youth’s Youth Board! Our youth board is an incredible  group of young people from our membership of fantastic youth clubs, youth and community organisations that helps London Youth demand change to improve the lives of all young Londoners. You can read more about our youth board here. 

What’s in it for me? 

  • Influence London’s decision makers 
  • Boost personal development – there’s lot of training, skill development
  • Ensuring young people’s voices are at the heart of London Youth’s work – by helping us ensure our programmes are high quality, feeding into funding bids, and helping with staff recruitment.
  • Creating campaigns 
  • Ensuring youth voice is heard within the youth sector and beyond –  by helping us to create communications content, attending events in person and online and speaking with the press and decision makers.
  • Represent young Londoner’s voices 
  • Have a great time with great people across the capital – through regular meetings at last Wednesday of every month, socials, and a residential!
  • Opportunities to become more involved in London Youth’s governance and decision making through discussing and meeting with our trustees and senior management team.
  • And so much more…

What happens when you join the board? You can be on the youth board for at least one year and up to a maximum of three years. You will have a chance to opt in to various types of opportunities (both online and in person) over the year and have regular meetings where you’ll help London Youth make decisions on our programmes, in our communications, and across our membership.
