Join our Trustee Committee!
Are you passionate about helping young people? Supporting the wider Clackmannanshire community? A team-player with lots of ideas? Get in touch!
We’re looking for new members to join our amazing Trustee Committee. We’re also specifically looking for someone interested in filling the Treasurer position.
What Does Being A Trustee Involve?
Being a Trustee is a voluntary role where you work with other members of our board to manage Connect Alloa. We are a local youth group, supporting young people and tackling social isolation and loneliness.
Throughout the week we host regular youth group sessions, where our young people can play games, get involved in fundraising challenges and just generally have a safe place to hang out and make friends.
- Attending our monthly board meetings (Zoom)
- Help direct and grow our organisation, setting goals/monitoring outcomes
- Occasionally supporting with different tasks (funding applications, etc.)
- Help oversee staff/volunteers
What We're Looking For
- Positive, can-do attitude
- Willingness to get involved
- Strong communication skills/teamwork
- Any experience with charities, youth work/education, etc.
We are open-minded and are really just looking for someone who wants to get involved with the team and can bring some varied experience to the role as well!
What Our Current Trustees Say
“I became the Secretary for Connect Alloa’s Board after an opening became available and enjoy working with like-minded people to help the charity.” – Courtney, Secretary.
“We live in a time where more and more young people are connected digitally, but ironically, where more and more young people feel disenfranchised and disconnected and lonely. Connect Alloa is a way to begin to address these challenges.” – Sang, Trustee.
“After five years of working with staff within a range of organisations as an external consultant, I was keen to have a more direct role in impacting on the services and experiences that young people were being offered, so in 2018 I joined the Connect Trustee Team. Driven by a passion for providing meaningful experiences, high quality service and great team support.” – Joanna, Chairperson.
