Young Charity Trustees (YCT) is 2 years old on May 10th. During that time they have grown thei LinkedIn group to more than 1150 members, been active on social media, been interviewed, spoken at events, written articles, and recruited a fantastic team of YCT Ambassadors who promote our work.

They have helped some brilliant organisations like Street League and Trailblazers find young trustees for their Boards, and discovered more about fantastic orgs that empower young people like Dare2Lead, Uprising, Charityworks and Generation 2 Generation, to name just a few.

They have helped charities looking for Board members and young people looking for opportunities. We have been blown away by the positive response that we have received and thank everyone so much for your support.

However, they want you to help us to dream bigger. Not only is there so much to be done around getting younger people onto charity Boards, but issues of gender, sexuality, ethnicity, disability and background on Boards are just as important.

Please help them to champion Board Diversity and get the message out to charities and to all those who care about them!
