The Youth Panel has been established for two years now and has been working to tackle homophobia in football from a youth perspective. The past two years have been an exciting journey for us and we have learned a lot. This learning has helped us to create a new approach for the Youth Panel.
Instead of recruiting twelve young people to join the panel and work across all the different strands of our strategy, we will be recruiting young people into specific roles. Each young person will sit on the panel for one year but will have the chance to reapply for the Youth Panel each year, for up to three years. Below is a list of the job descriptions you can apply for. Applicants must be aged between 16-25.
All Youth Panel members are expected to volunteer at least 4 hours each month.
Chairperson: 1 Role
The Chairperson will support the coordinator to plan and deliver Youth Panel meetings, host monthly skype calls with the rest of the team and work to ensure that the youth panel achieves the strategic objectives.
