Youth Advisory Board
We've partnered with Leaders Unlocked to give young people a stake in our decision-making and a voice on the issues that matter to them.


The Youth Endowment Fund’s mission is to prevent children and young people becoming involved in violence. It’s a mission that matters and one that we can only achieve by putting young people at the heart of our work. That’s why we’ve partnered with Leaders Unlocked to help set-up and run our Youth Advisory Board.

Our Youth Advisory Board will:

  • Shape our decisions and influence how we spend almost £200m of funding on programmes to prevent young people becoming involved in violence.
  • Help us generate new ideas and approaches.
  • Be a critical friend and provide a youth perspective on what we say and do.
  • Be fully supported, trained and remunerated.


Get involved!

We’re currently looking for young people who are interested in joining our Youth Advisory Board. We’re particularly interested in hearing from those who have been affected by youth violence – either directly or indirectly – and are passionate as we are, about making a real and lasting difference.

If this sounds like you or you know a young person who fits the bill, we’d love to hear from you! Click here to find out more.
