Overview of Columba 1400
At Columba 1400 we help young people and the adults around them to be the change they want to see in the world. We want every young person to find the greatness that is inside them and since 2000 we’ve helped over 10,000 young people and adults transform their lives. We work shoulder-to-shoulder with young people and the adults around them helping them explore their core values and unlock their inner strength so they can make a difference to their community and transform their sense of identity, their confidence and their ambition. We do this through our Leadership Academies – transformational and inspirational experiences that unlock values, create the conditions for change and uncovers a strength that stands the test of time. With a deep understanding of their own core values, young people unlock an inner strength that can never be shut down – no matter what tough realities life throws at them.
Overall Purpose of Role
Columba 1400 is looking for two young people aged 16-30 to join our Board as Young Person Consultants to shape and drive the future of the organisation. Columba 1400 is embarking on a significant growth period across all areas of our work and these roles are essential to ensure that young people’s views are at the heart our governance. The roles will champion the voice of young people and challenge their fellow Trustees and Columba 1400’s Leadership Team to continue to focus on helping young people discover their true potential.
As a member of Columba 1400’s Board of Trustees the role will include participating in Board Meetings, Chair the soon to be created Participation Committee and, sit on another committee of choice, such as the Audit, Quality or Renumeration Committees. The term for these posts will be for three years after which new young people will be appointed.
