Trustee - London Youth Games
Do you want to create life-changing opportunities for young Londoners? Do you have a passion for sport? Have you ever considered becoming a Trustee?
Well, this is a role for you. London Youth Games (LYG) are currently looking to appoint a new Trustee to their Board.
LYG was launched in 1977 to celebrate the Queen’s Silver Jubilee. Since then, they have provided unique, accessible competitive sporting opportunities to over 1.5 million young Londoners.
This summer, LYG positively adapted to the current challenges of the COVID-19 pandemic and successfully pivoted to create ‘The Virtual Games’ in which they had over 40,000 entries. Innovation and agility are at the core of LYG, whose vision includes using the Games (virtual or physical) to build the physical health and mental well-being of young Londoners. LYG also want to use the Games to be a driver of social integration for the participants and volunteers.
LYG’s prominence in creating life-changing opportunities for young Londoners was underpinned and validated with the recent 3 year sponsorship agreement with Nike.
LYG has a celebrated alumni, including Dina Asher Smith, David Weir, Raheem Sterling and Mo Farah, and looks forward to the next challenge during these strange and unprecedented times. They work closely in partnership with Sport England, the Greater London Authority, and all London Boroughs to continue to bring the LYG to young Londoners.
So, where do you come in?
You will become a member of a Board that has the responsibility of setting the strategic aims and objectives for LYG and ensuring that they are fulfilled while having a huge impact on young people today. LYG are looking for individuals who are innovative thinkers, who see beyond the now and want to be a part of bigger and better sport to the young people of London.

- Someone with a strong personal or family connection to London
