Columba 1400 Young People Consultant – volunteer role

Columba 1400 is growing across all areas of our work and we want to ensure that young people’s views are at the heart of everything we do. We’re looking for two young people to join our Board of Trustees to champion the voice of their peers and challenge their fellow trustees and Columba 1400’s leadership team to continue helping young people discover their true potential.

Why join?

  • Shape the future of Columba 1400
  • Develop leadership skills by sitting on a board of trustees
  • Champion the voice of young people at a strategic level

Young person consultants can expect to commit to approximately 1.5 days per month to allow time to prepare for and attend meetings, and carry out various other duties. Currently, the Board of Trustees meet either in person or virtually. Once a year in June, the Board meet at our centre on the Isle of Skye.
