Hello we are RYP
RYP (Riverside Youth Project) is a NEW 100% volunteer run and youth-led project currently being set up to work with young people aged 13-19 years old, providing them with positive activities and prosperous futures, based in areas along the River Thames in London.
We aim to provide fun, engaging and interactive activities to young people that help booster their life and social skills and also help develop their future prospects by giving them access to new opportunities and experiences that they would not usually have access to.
Can you help? We are looking for
We are currently seeking a Secretary to the Board of Trustees and Trustee Volunteer to join us for at approx 4 to 6 hours per month and help shape RYP for local young people, especially by providing project management and secretarial duties for the board, this includes ensuring we follow 'Good Practice', and compliance in relation to charity law.
The Trustees are responsible for the management and administration of the organisation, providing strategic direction, control and accountability, ensuring that young people are involved in the decisions we make and that what we do is in line with our mission and objectives.
This includes meeting regularly and being accountable for the work we are doing, helping us to set up and create a youth project relevant to the needs of young people and to ensure we have all the resources we need, including fundraising through activities and grants, support the front line volunteers and ensure that RYP run as smoothly as possible.
As Secretary you will also organise Trustee Meetings, pull together board papers and send to Trustees at least 2 weeks before the meeting, take minutes at meetings as an official record and then type them up for signing and keep all official records for RYP.
