Young Citizens are looking for a Young Trustee

Young Citizens are seeking to recruit somebody between the ages of 18-23 to our Board of Trustees.  They want to try to reflect a relevant range of skills and experiences on their Board and feel that they would benefit from the experience of somebody who has relatively recently been a student in the education system and/or has experience as a young active citizen or involvement in social action or youth voice. As well as this experience, they hope they will also bring insights into priorities and perspectives of the young people we seek to benefit.

Please share with young people in your networks.
