The Youth Bridge Trust (YBT) is an innovative organisation, based in Johannesburg, established in July 2017. The Trust aims to create opportunities for young people to be successful in the workforce, develop livelihood skills and further their education, through partnerships and collaborations. The Trust has a regional focus and is developing programmes and partnerships throughout Southern Africa. As a grant-making body rather than an implementing entity, the Trust funds grantees whose programmes and projects align to the vision and mission of the Trust.
Youth Bridge Trust seeks board members to join the existing board to be based in Johannesburg.
The Board is non-executive and voluntary, though expenses may be paid. Board meetings are scheduled four times per year in Johannesburg, but additional meetings may be necessary.
Previous experience of an NGO board is essential, an understanding of the not-for-profit sector and a strong business background are highly desirable. Experience of youth programming/education/training would be advantageous.
