What is the Youth Board?

Keep Wales Tidy’s Youth Board will consist of ten enthusiastic young people aged 16 to 25. Together, you’ll come up with new ideas and actions that will inform our work. We particularly want to hear how you think we could get more of your peers involved, as well as offering your views on the topics being discussed by our Trustee Board.




How will it work?

The Youth Board will meet every three months (sometimes online, sometimes in person).

The group will work closely with our Board of Trustees and be supported by a member of Keep Wales staff. They’ll be on hand to help with all the routine stuff, including organising meetings and writing up notes.

Becoming a member of our Youth Board is a voluntary, unpaid role, although we’ll cover your travel expenses. We’ll also make sure you take part in virtual meetings.

The meetings will be a safe space and everyone’s contribution will be valued equally. We want you to be honest about how you think Keep Wales Tidy should be looking after the environment.

Why get involved?

There are lots of great opportunities for members of the Youth Board.

Most importantly, you can make a real difference! Members can get together with likeminded people to voice their stance on environmental issues and put forward fresh ideas.

The Youth Board will be supported by members from Keep Wales Tidy to develop new skills and connect with environmental leaders on our senior management team and Board of Trustees.

Keep Wales Tidy is an equal opportunity organisation. We celebrate diversity and are committed to creating an inclusive environment for everyone. We welcome applications from all areas, ethnicities, and religions. Whoever you are and wherever you come from – we will make you a welcome member of our team.
