FYA Ambassdors are at the forefront of FYA, representing members and making decisions across the whole organisation. The FYA Youth Ambassador Programme directly involves and empowers young people in the running of the organisation by training a team of alumni young people to represent the voices of young people within FYA projects and be involved in organisational decisions.
The ambassadors normally meet monthly. They steer the organisation alongside our Trustee board, doing their own research and consultation activities and events to find out what young people in Camden are passionate about, conducting peer reviews with project participants to ensure our work is high standard and relevant, and supporting our programmes as young leaders and acting as peer support for new members.
The project was launched in February 2017 and you can see pictures from our ambassador teams below since.
The team have met monthly since their training in October – supporting the steering of the organisation into recovery. The Co-chairs have also attended trustee meetings, and representatives for Comms and fundraising have sat on those subgroups with trustees.
We are working with staff and trustees on the new strategy for the organisation.
