A Post on Behalf of Youth Concern AylesburyFebruary 1, 2012
I have agreed to post the below on behalf of Youth Concern Aylesbury concerning their search for a Honorary Chairman.
HONORARY CHAIRMAN VACANY
YOUTH CONCERN AYLESBURY
Established in 1979, Youth Concern (Aylesbury) is a registered charity based around a drop in centre and coffee bar. They have a number of key partnerships with local agencies working with young people whilst concentrating on offering quality intensive support and interventions for vulnerable young people at risk. Youth Concern (Aylesbury’s) current client group focuses on young people, many of whom are vulnerable and have complex needs. They have excellent on-site facilities that are accessed by their clients including an IT suite and a purpose built in-house Music Studio with high specification equipment and software. The drop in centre is staffed by experienced youth workers and volunteers who address the needs of clients on an individual basis. Youth Concern (Aylesbury) also have qualified counsellors working on-site. Referrals to specialist agencies are made as appropriate. The charity is managed by a Chief Executive and is currently governed by four Trustees and an Executive Committee of ten.
Since relocating to purpose designed premises in 2008 the charity has undergone a major restructuring. After four years in the role the current chairman, Chris Medley, is stepping down and Youth Concern is currently recruiting a new Hon. Chairman and Trustee. They are seeking an inspiring, progressive and committed individual to lead the charity into the next phase. Youth Concern (Aylesbury) would like to hear from you if you believe that you have the personal qualities and desire to lead an organisation that can make a difference to the lives of young people. If you are interested in participating in the leadership of Youth Concern (Aylesbury), please contact the charity for details of how to apply. The role of Hon. Chairman is part-time (around 12 hours+ per month) and unpaid.
If you would like an informal and confidential discussion about the charity or its governance, please contact Fran Borg-Wheeler, CEO, on 01296 431183 or 07730 666608.
