Alex Buckmire, Marketing & Research Director at Voluntary Action Harrow said: "It is a common misconception that young people do not have enough skills or would not be interested in becoming trustees. The fact is, their experience, perspective and general enthusiasm mean they have a great deal to contribute. "
"Trustees are the guardians of the values and ethos of a charity, they are the people who volunteer their time and skills to ensure its objectives are meet and oversee its strategic development. And whilst it is a big responsibility, this project provides a great opportunity for young people to share their experience and insight, as well as providing a rewarding experience for local business employees."
Initial response has been very positive and VAH have already received applications to join the programme. If you are a young person or a local business employee who would be interested in sharing your skills and experience for a great cause, please contact Voluntary Action Harrow by calling 02088615894 or email firstname.lastname@example.org
