Young people are most affected by the most persistent problems in the world, yet are frequently overlooked as part of the solution. Our mission is to place young people at the forefront of change and development. This is a particularly exciting and important phase of our development as we prepare our new strategy for the rest of the decade, and extend our influence within the global international community.

We're currently recruiting for three new trustees to join our board.

Beyond that, we are currently seeking three new trustees with specific skills and expertise in law, programmes and policy respectively to complement our current board’s skill sets.
