Youth Board Members Report

Created 2 years ago, updated 2 years ago

This report is an investigation into the work being done by sport and recreation organisations to engage young stakeholders in decision making by setting up youth boards or young ambassador programmes.

The report answers three main questions:

  • What are the similarities and differences in how organisations have approached youth engagement in decision making?
  • What examples are there of success and good practice in youth engagement work?
  • What trends are there in the challenges faced by youth influencing or decision-making groups, and organisations looking to improve their engagement with young people?

The end goal of this process is to find out what can be done to promote increased engagement with young people as well as better support those who are already leading the way on these efforts.
