Engaging young people as trustees and online

Two articles from The Guardian’s Voluntary Sector Network on engaging with young people:

  •   ‘We need to do more to attract young people to sit on charity boards‘ which draws on a recent survey of young people’s awareness and interest in being a trustee – not entirely representative but nevertheless offering insights.
  •  The boss of youth volunteering promoter Vinspired writes on ‘Using digital effectively ensures relevance to a young audience’ based on its research ‘Online Engagement, Offline Action’. Vinspired has a web section on the research, with trendy grey on grey text and other features clearly aimed at those with young eyes (so not checked out by your editor!), http://engageimpact.vinspired.com
