It’s been an incredible Trustees’ Week so far. One of the things I have been struck by is the interest that there has been in young people becoming Trustees.
I have seen so many tweets about young people as Trustees being discussed at conferences, seminars and meetings across the country.
There have been more articles written about young people as Trustees than I have ever seen before.
In no particular order, here are the ones I have found:
– A Guardian post from Mita Desai, Chair of the British Youth Council
– A blog for NPC by David Bull
– A blog by Mike Zywina, owner of Lime Green Consulting
– A blog for SCVO by Ilse Mackinnon
– An article by Robbie Cowbury for Alliance Magazine
– My own piece for NPC, just before Trustees’ Week began
– Post from Dr Miles Weaver (an Ambassador for Young Charity Trustees)
– Alex Dwek from BeyondMe
– An introduction to the young Board of Student Volunteering Cardiff
– A post for the I Am Group’s Blog
– An article about a new club from It’s Good 2 Give
– An interview with Michelle Wright on the Cause4 website
– A post by Voluntary Action North East Lincolnshire
– A Sunday Times interview with Sir Thomas Hughes-Hallett
This article from last year that links to our work was also widely shared.
If I have missed any blogs or articles about young trusteeship, and I will be delighted if I have, please add them to the comments below so that more people can see them.
Oh- and the new Young Charity Trustees website is on the way, please look out for it in spring next year. In the meantime, please get involved on our LinkedIn group or engage with our Twitter and Facebook accounts. Our most comprehensive recent post on getting young people involved as Trustees is here.
