Canongate Youth Project, which provides facilities and training for young people in the Southside and beyond, is looking for new members of its board. From the request I received:
"Canongate Youth Project wants to expand the experience and skills in its Board and is looking for new Board members. The organisation is at a very interesting stage of development and is going through significant but exciting and positive change.
We are seeking trustees with experience in any of the following areas: business, HR, fundraising.
We are also seeking trustees with knowledge of nearby communities and the needs of young people living locally.
Our vision is for children and young people in Edinburgh and the Lothians to be healthy, happy and secure belong in their communities and become confident and fulfilled adults."
If you know someone who fits the bill and is willing to help a local community organisation please contact Vicki Ridley at the CYP.
