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.
