  • Culture: to establish a culture for the Board and to promote that culture through the Executive Team and the rest of the organisation.

  • Governance:
    • To oversee & support the performance of the Executive Team in delivering this strategy.
    • To ensure that YFF complies with its legal and regulatory requirements.
    • To act as guardians of YFF’s assets both tangible and intangible, ensuring that they are only used for the mission of the organisation.
  • Critical friends: to build a relationship with the Executive Team that promotes honesty, transparency and accountability.
  • Ambassadors: to act as ambassadors representing the organisation to all stakeholders.

You’ll be willing to make a strategic contribution as a key member of the board and bring a background in one of the following areas; Youth sector funders & providers, access to employer communities, or grassroots youth engagement.
