London Youth is a charity on a mission to improve the lives of young people in London, challenging them to become the best they can. Last year, we worked with over 27,000 young people giving them access to opportunities they might not otherwise have had through a network of over 480 community youth organisations and two residential centres. We provide sports development, employability, youth action, arts and outdoor education programmes to young people who wouldn’t otherwise have access to these kinds of opportunities.
London Youth is now looking for outstanding candidates for our next Chair to join the board in March 2020. We are looking for someone with a commitment to the Vision and Principles of London Youth who will act as an advocate for the charity and ensure proper governance. Acting in partnership with our Chief Executive, Rosemary Watt-Wyness, and President, Sir Kenneth Olisa OBE, this person will be a passionate ambassador and will shape the strategy of the charity.
Candidates should demonstrate a track record of leadership and good financial acumen. A passion for the work London Youth does is critical and candidates will demonstrate strong networking skills and a willingness to use their connections and influence to advance the organisation’s mission. The role will require two to three days per month. This is the opportunity to help lead an organisation making a demonstrable impact on the lives of young people across London.
