Our Youth Board

YST Our Youth Board
Positioned at the heart of our organisation, our Youth Board represents and communicates the views of all young people to inform and enhance our work.

Our Youth Board aims to give a voice to young people from every corner of society. It has three main areas of responsibility:

  • Advisory - advise on the direction of our work and how to best engage with young people

  • Development - establish a youth-led fundraising strategy, generating income for the Youth Board to direct

  • Communications - showcase the work of the Youth Sport Trust through social media and represent us in the media.
