Lincolnshire FA is now accepting expressions of interest to join the newly-formed Lincolnshire FA Youth Council for the 2019/20 season.
If you're aged between 14-24 years old and are looking to volunteer in football, you could be perfect for the role.
What is the Youth Council?
The Lincolnshire FA Youth Council is a group of young people aged 14-24 who meet on a bi-monthly basis to provide support for County FA initiatives and are the voice for young people in Lincolnshire.
It also provides opportunities for personal development through workshops and individual development plans to support future aspirations.
Why should you apply?
Joining the Youth Council is a great tool for personal development. The skills learned and developed during your time in the Youth Council such as planning, leadership, communication and teamwork will arm you with valuable skills required for success in your future career. There are also the opportunities to gain valuable experience through county-wide events and initiatives.
As well as this, there is also the opportunity to represent the County FA on the FA national Leadership Academy program.
What do we need from you?
During the 2019/20 season, meetings will take place on a bi-monthly basis at a variety of times and potential venues.
The Youth Council members will have responsibility working in a specific area within the game. Members will also be liaising with staff development teams to work on specific projects for which they will be required to attend associated events for during the season.
We ask applicants to consider if they feel they will be able attend at least 75% of Youth Council commitments during the season before submitting an application.
Who should apply?
The Youth Council is available to anyone aged 14-24 years old, so if you are motivated about increasing youth representation across grassroots football in the county and to raise awareness of opportunities for young people, then this is the role for you.
Please note, if you are under the age of 18, we will need a parent/guardian’s contact information and consent.
There is no prior experienced needed and a background in football is not a necessity.
