UN Youth's governing body, the Board of Directors, currently carries casual vacancies. We are calling for expressions of interest for Director positions, from individuals who believe they have the skills and expertise to support the Board’s leadership and governance responsibilities.
This is an exciting opportunity to get hands-on governance experience and give back to the community!
Board meetings are normally virtual and held monthly for up to two hours. Directors will also sit in one or more Board Committees. Committees typically meet at least once every two months. Directors will also be expected to contribute to specific projects or initiatives alongside general meeting preparation. The Board may also hold strategic planning sessions, and this and any other travel for events or meetings in your role as a Director will be covered by UN Youth, to the extent that is possible under our Policies.
There is no remuneration for this role as all positions within UN Youth are entirely voluntary. However, reasonable expenses may be claimed.
If you are interested, please submit an expression of interest which includes the following:
● If you are currently enrolled at a tertiary institution; and
● Any involvement you have had with UN Youth
● A covering letter outlining you would contribute to the Board, noting the above attributes; and
● A CV of no more than two pages.
Further information about the role can be found here!
Expressions of Interest must be emailed to the Chairperson of the Board, Amelia Lamb at [email protected].
