Our Advisory Board is an incredible group of people working in the sector who offer give advice and support to the Young Trustees Movement.
Our Mission and values
- Double the number of trustees aged 30 and under on charity boards by 2024. While the spotlight is on the age factor, our movement is part of a wider call for diversity on boards.
- Create a norm of Boards embarking on a journey of change and realising that this also benefits all board members.
- Changing the image of what a trustee looks like, by shining a light on the impact made by young trustees.
- Define what conditions allow for safe spaces where all young people can genuinely add their perspective.
- Meaningfully empower organisations/existing initiatives working in this space.
- To have an impact that serves all young people, we must have an intersectional movement. This is an ongoing process and we are keen to connect and get feedback – for more information please get in touch.
- Intersectional diversity of perspectives
- Young people are safe & can make informed choices
- Young people lead this movement

The Young Trustees Movement didn’t come up with the concept of young trustees - young people have been contributing to boards long before we were founded!

We are not a single person or organisation, but a network that is bigger than the sum of its parts. Our ability to make an impact is therefore defined by the actions of the people in it – join us!
We are a movement led by young people. Ambassadors are young trustees leading and building the movement across England and Wales.
Champions are change makers and take action, big or small, to diversify trustee boards.
A network of speakers who share their insights and tips at panel events, podcasts, blogs and more.
