We are looking for passionate and committed young people from across the UK to join Groundwork’s Youth Advisory Board (YAB). The YAB will consist of up to 16 young people, aged 16-24, shaping the work of Groundwork.

We welcome young people with a range of experience, valuing the insights and energy you bring to the group!

If you are passionate about the same issues as Groundwork and would like to join a group of like-minded young people, then the YAB will support you to make your voice heard – just see what the YAB achieved in 2023 here!

Groundwork is committed to making the environmental sector more diverse and inclusive, so we are particularly keen to see applications from young people from ethnic minority backgrounds, those with disabilities, and individuals from low-income households to reflect the diversity of communities we serve.

Start your application now

Step 1 – Fill in the short form below to express your interest in joining the Youth Advisory Board 2024

Step 2 – We will send you an invitation to a (very informal) group interview or one-to-one phone call, which ever you prefer! This is really a chance to meet the team and ask questions about the role – there are no tests or tricky questions. These will take place mid-January 2024.

Step 3 – We will confirm whether you have been selected for the YAB 2024 by the end of January.
