Youth Advisory Group - Members Wanted

The Amateur FA is looking for a group of young people to start their Youth Advisory Group (YAG).

The Youth Advisory Group is open to 16 to 24 year-olds, passionate about shaping, developing and making a difference for young people in grassroots football within the amateur game. 

The YAG will work together to give young people a voice within amateur football. Members should be passionate about building for the future and evolving our game to ensure it is a safe, enjoyable and inclusive place for all. The aims of the group will be drawn from Amateur FA’s strategy, including looking at the transition into open-age football and ensuring if more can be done to safeguard young people in the adult game.

The YAG is key in promoting football for everyone and enables the Amateur FA to increase awareness, understanding and knowledge of young people, so that we will better meet the needs of all our communities who take part in football and ultimately our business.

Being a part of the YAG gives you the opportunity to build your CV through various opportunities, which will help increase your employability. You will also get a hands-on experience in the football industry, whilst being given the opportunity to expand your network with County FA staff and the wider FA community.

The ideal candidate will be committed to making a difference in the game and have some knowledge and experience in grassroots football. They will also need to be able to work as a member of the team, have good communication skills and the ability to manage and administrate your own activities.

Becoming a member of the Amateur FA Youth Advisory Group is a fantastic opportunity for those interested in leadership and football. The role is voluntary and successful candidates will be expected to attend at least four YAG meetings throughout the year, in addition to undertaking individual assignments allocated to them by the group.
