The British Youth Council (BYC) is looking for people aged 16-25 who are motivated by a belief in the work of BYC to achieve our vision of a world where all young people are respected and able to influence and inform decisions that affect their lives or on which they have strong opinions.
BYC really is governed by young people for young people. Our board of trustees is made up of 13 people elected by delegates from our members. The board not only sets the strategic direction of the organisation, monitors progress, they shape our activities, and act as ambassadors and spokespeople for BYC in the media and elsewhere.
While your first goal as a trustee is to serve your peers and BYC, it is also a way to build your experience and networks, develop a broad range of skills and help shape the future of a world where all young people have a say and are heard.
We would encourage all ages to apply bringing both representation of those we serve alongside experience of governance. BYC needs a diverse, inclusive spread of ages and talents.
We’ve put together a pack containing more information. Take a look at it here.
The deadline for applications is Friday 15th May at 11.59pm, so be quick!
