Youth Focus: North East Youth Board

Youth Board

Youth Focus North East co-produce and co-deliver projects across the region to improve the lives of young people. Young people’s voices are at the centre of our work and we create a space for people to inform and influence the world around them.

The Youth Board creates a platform for young people to have a greater voice in shaping the direction and operation of our organisation. Members of the Youth Board feed their experiences and opinions directly in to the Board of Directors and Senior Management at Youth Focus North East via a meeting every two months.

Youth Board members will receive support, guidance and training on the skills needed to become a Trustee or Director from our current Board of Directors. When positions become available, we will encourage young people from the Youth Board to progress to Directors here at Youth Focus: North East.

Our current Youth Board members come from across the region, bringing a variety of skills, experience and knowledge to help further our work. Our members are:

Astrud Turner

Callum Oxley

Crystal Moniz

Elena Douglas

Israel Wisgeme

Jonney Leonard

Rachel Anderson

Wayne Potts

Zeeshan Ayub
