Youth Advisory Board Member

To be able to truly meet the needs and demand of young people, they have to be represented at all levels of the charity. The Mix are proud to develop our newly established Youth Advisory Board and we are recruiting those passionate about bringing youth voice to the governance level of the charity to join us on this board.

You do not need experience of charity governance, just a passion to champion the needs of young people and their involvement in the delivery of The Mix's services. You will also need to commit to the length of service and scheduled meetings.

The Mix is looking to recruit a new Youth Advisory Board to strengthen our existing Youth Voice Programme. The Youth Advisory Board will ensure that young people are represented throughout all levels of the charity.

The Mix has a strong youth voice network, with under 25’s involved across all areas of our charity. Under 25’s influence our support, content, and campaigns, and we also have two young trustees who ensure that young people’s perspectives are represented with our board of trustees.

The Youth Advisory Board will make a direct link between our youth voice work and how decisions are made across the charity. Working alongside The Mix’s senior management team and advising our board of trustees, The Mix’s Youth Advisory Board will play a vital role in shaping the charities direction.

We are looking for young people to join our first ever Youth Advisory Board. You will be aged between 16-25 years old and be passionate about issues which impact young people and feel ready to advocate for young people at a charity governance level.
