Did you know that the average age of a charity Trustee is 57?

And that only 0.05% of the trustee population in England and Wales is aged 18-24?

At Nottinghamshire Wildlife Trust, we’d like to start changing this, to empower the next generation of charity leaders.

  • Are you aged 18-25?
  • Are you passionate about connecting people with nature?
  • Do you want to be an ambassador for young people, and bring the perspective of a young person to our board of Trustees?

The role would involve attending a few weekday evening meetings a year and is a great insight how a charity is run.

It provides an opportunity for you to make a real impact to improve and advance the wild places of Nottinghamshire, by helping to shape NWT’s work that will directly inspire, empower and enable people to connect with and take action for nature.

Interested? Then consider applying now!

You could be the change that we need to make this happen.

Youth Trustee role description

Who are our current Trustees?

We are looking to diversify and include a youth element to our Board of Trustees.

You can see our current Trustees and read a bit more about the Trust here.

Who we are

The person or persons will be able to be the voice at this important level for our current youth work too, so expect to get involved with the youth team!

We are looking to establish a Youth Advisory Group too so the formation of this will form part of the role.

Our Youth Programme

We currently have a programme of youth work that includes:

Our 13 to 25 year olds that call themselves 'Keeping It Wild'.

Keeping It Wild

Our Young Rangers aged 13-18.

As well as our youngest age group of Wildlife Watchers aged 8-12.

But it doesn't end there, as we hold events throughout the year for families with babies and toddlers and young children to experience their first steps with nature in a safe environment.
