YMCA DownsLink Group (YMCA DLG) was formed two years ago with a vision to be an inclusive organisation with a Christian foundation, transforming communities in Surrey and Sussex so that all children and young people can belong, contribute and thrive. As part of our strategic planning, we are looking for a new trustee to join the Board, with a specific responsibility for young people influencing.
About Us YMCA DLG is one of the largest YMCAs in the country serving our local communities in the south east across Surrey and Sussex. With a turnover of £12m and a staff team of 520, including 150 volunteers, we provide a range of services (including accommodation, health and well-being, advice & guidance, training, education and vocational support) which directly benefit around 15,000 children, young people and families each year.
We are in an exciting new chapter for YMCA DLG, one we have defined in our 2020 Vision: Youth Minded Community Approach, to extend our impact and reach to transform more young lives and to empower young people to participate and influence both internally and externally.
To help us achieve our vision we have a Board of Trustees committed to providing strategic direction and a sound and robust system of governance. We have had many successes in this area, including through the work of our YMCA Right Here project, and the #IAMWHOLE campaign.
The Role Working closely with the Executive Team, the Board sets and maintains the vision and mission and develops the strategy for the organisation.
The Board has regular meetings in different locations across the area. Trustees are also expected to make occasional visits to projects across Surrey and Sussex.
The position is not salaried and reasonable expenses will be paid.
We are seeking a new trustee who has relevant skills and experience in empowering and enabling young people to have a voice for influencing change. We welcome interest from people from a range of different backgrounds.
You must be in the age range of 18 - 30 years of age at the start of the tenure of the role
This is a great opportunity to be part of something very important, supporting our work with young people and ensuring young people are influencing at every level of our organisation.
