Young Trustees Movement
Less than 3% of charity trustees are under 30. We're changing that.
The Young Trustees Movement is made up of current and aspiring young trustees, employers and allies. We exist to double the number of trustees aged 30 and under on charity boards by 2024.
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.

When 1/12 trustees are named either John or David and fewer than 3% of trustees are under 30. It’s no secret that board diversity is an issue. Join us in changing that. The first step is attending this workshop.
By the end of our 1 hour workshop you will:
Be able to articulate and understand how young trustees can enable organisations to navigate uncertainty, future proof decisions and reflect the interest of their communities .
Have a framework to understand how to approach diversity on boards.
Be able to run a session with a board to plan practical and achievable next steps.
Optional extra hour:
There will also be an additional hour after the session where you will have access to a non-judgemental space, where you can talk through challenges, concerns and any other barriers to meaningfully recruiting and inducting young trustees.
Lots of charity boards are recruiting now! Take a look at current vacancies and find the role that’s right for you.

The board is responsible for ensuring that the organization is meeting its charitable objectives and is well governed.

• Experience in acting as Trustees or non-executive directors
• Comfortable in driving strategy led by NUS’ elected officers
• Experience in interrogating performance data and designing ways to measure organisational effectiveness
• Wide ranging knowledge in building links with public sector organisations.
• A knowledge of the Further Education/Higher Education sector
