A Great Opportunity
Are you aged between 16 and 25? Are there changes you want to see made in your community? Are you passionate about volunteering and giving back? Do you feel that young people are powerful and can make a true difference? Are you looking to have a say in a new organisation that is trying to make a lasting impact in London? If you answered yes to any of the above, then we are looking for you.

As a member of City Year London’s Youth Advisory Board you will be given the opportunity to learn from a diverse group of young people united by similar goals and motivations. You will have the chance to help plan and lead one-off community volunteering events, as well as representing young people and discussing the issues that affect you and those around you.

Who are we looking for?
People who are:

· Passionate, enthusiastic, creative

· Looking to effect change in London

· Between 16 and 25 years old

· Wanting to promote young people’s commitment to serving their community

When does this opportunity take place?

The City Year London Youth Advisory Board will meet 9 times a year (three times a school term), in the evening, in a central London location.

What is City Year?
City Year brings together young people of all backgrounds for a year of full-time volunteering, giving them the skills and opportunities to change the world. Working in primary schools as mentors, tutors and role models our young leaders make a difference by delivering in-school and after-school programmes and community projects. City Year has been running in the United States and South Africa for over 20 years; London is our first site in Europe.
