We’re on the hunt for brilliant Trustees for West, Hammersmith and Fulham Youth Zone.This is a unique and exciting opportunity to improve the life chances of thousands of young people in West London.
West Youth Zone, due to open its doors in early 2024 in White City, West London, will be a high quality, inspirational and well-run charity, focused on changing the lives of thousands of young people, aged 8–19-year-olds, and up to 25 for young people with additional needs – delivering social impact on an incredible scale. The facilities will be second to none, hosting over 20 sporting, artistic, cultural and general recreational activities each session – whenever schools are closed – that’s 7 days a week, evenings and weekends, plus all through the school holidays. West Youth Zone is based on a proven model of youth service provision and is part of a network of 15 Youth Zones, within the OnSide Network. OnSide’s role is to provide ongoing support to the existing network as the umbrella organisation within a federated structure and also to create new Zones, taking our tried and tested model to ever more young people across the country.
As we prepare for opening, the West Board of trustees is looking to fill some remaining roles on the Board to ensure we have a brilliant balance of skills, experiences and backgrounds. We would love to hear from people who are passionate about supporting and developing opportunities for young people. You will be dynamic, motivated, and able to actively contribute your time and expertise for the benefit of the charity, through the role of Trustee.
We are particularly looking for individuals with expertise, knowledge and the willingness to take on one of more of these portfolios:
The Trustee Board currently meets every two months; trustees are not paid and will be required to undergo a vetting process including an enhanced DBS check.
The strength of the OnSide Network of Youth Zones is the diversity of its people; we place huge value on different people doing things in different ways and we welcome applications from people of all backgrounds. The one thing we all have in common is our desire to raise the aspirations of young people across the country.
If you are interested and would like to hear more, please contact Jamie.firstname.lastname@example.org. Likewise to apply, please send your CV and a cover letter (two pages maximum), clearly stating what you would bring as a trustee and the portfolio(s) in which you are interested, to the same address.
