Become a Trustee
Trustees come from all walks of life, ages and backgrounds: professionals, parents, retirees, students. A trustee of Berkshire Youth can be anyone who is enthusiastic about our work for young people and committed to making a difference for them. Berkshire Youth Trustees are responsible for making sure the charity is well-managed and delivers what it was set up to do. Key roles and responsibilities are:
- Setting Berkshire Youth’s strategy: devising and implementing strategies that are financially sound, enabling BY to continue to act as the advocate for young people in Berkshire, helping them to fulfill their potential.
- Directing the activities of Berkshire Youth and ensuring it is carrying out the purposes for which it was set up.
- Ensuring it is well managed and complying with charity law.
- Making sure finances are handled properly: checking that Berkshire Youth is complying with accounting and reporting requirements, and using voluntary donations and income appropriately and responsibly.
- It’s a voluntary role – you won’t get paid but expenses are available.
- It can be challenging – you’ll need to commit time and effort, including attending meetings, taking an interest, actively supporting BY and acting as an ambassador for us within your own networks.
- And you're guaranteed to find it hugely rewarding and worthwhile.
