Board of Governance


Youth Action is accountable to a community-based Board of Governance. The Board is responsible for determining Youth Action's strategic direction and ensuring legal and financial compliance.

The Youth Action Board consists of up to 9 elected members and up to 2 coopted members. Elected members are elected by the Youth Action membership at the Annual General Meeting (AGM) each year. Coopted members are appointed by the Board for an interim term.
The various positions on the Board are outlined in the Youth Action Objects and Rules of Association, which prescribes that the Board be representative of our three membership categories.
