Being a trustee has taught me a lot about challenging biases. I’ve met many unlikely allies that have spent time and energy to bring me into conversations.
I think the greatest reward is that I know that I'm making a difference and the number of young trustees is going up.
My personal ambition and aspiration has increased too, and I think that's partly because I've seen how much greatness there is in the charity sector and what a huge difference it makes.
You’re in good company!
Great work is already being done. Lots of organisations have young trustees on their boards already. Here are just a few amazing charities that are part of the movement.
