A COMMUNITY charity is recruiting young people across Hampshire and to shape the charity’s vision at a national level.

Groundwork, a charity which helps disadvantaged communities, is looking for 16 to 24-year-olds to join the Groundwork Youth Advisory Board (YAB), and be the voice of young people and are willing to be an active voice and share their views to help the community charity shape campaigns and youth work.

From February to November, YAB members will play a vital role in shaping future campaigns.

Project management, blogging and social media and campaign fruition and leadership opportunities will be a major part of the YAB role, and Groundwork will be providing support, resources, and encouragement needed to ensure the success of the programme.

National chief exectuive officer at Groundwork, Graham Duxbury, said: “Young people want to be trustees for the same reason as everyone else: because they care about a cause and want to help; but also because they want to get something out of the experience for themselves.”

Successful candidates will build upon the past two years of the scheme, after the first ‘Youth Summit’ last year.

YAB members were also involved in creating the summer of 2018’s ‘Inclusive Spaces’ campaign.

The deadline for applications is Friday, 8 February. For more information and to apply, go to groundwork.org.uk/Sites/youthhub/pages/join-our-youth-advisory-board.
