"The single best thing I've ever done." That's how Tom describes his experience of becoming a charity trustee.

Whether you want to supercharge your leadership skills, build new skills or give back to your local community or an issue you're passionate about, there are so many reasons to volunteer as a trustee on a charity board. But many young people don't know where to start. That's where Getting on Board comes in.

Getting on Board are here to guide you through the process.

What you'll learn from this session:

  • What a trustee is
  • How to find a vacancy
  • How you can get the resources and support you need to leap into trusteeship.
