Join our Youth Council

Applications now open for 16-21 year olds to gain experience and enhance your CV


Want to help us get more youth people involved in football - not just playing but also officiating, coaching and volunteering?

 Aged 16 - 21?

 Join our Youth Council and help us to shape the future of football in Northumberland, launch campaigns to promote social change through sport and increase inclusivity.

 What's in it for you?

 In return we can give you valuable personal development experience. You'll work collaboratively with your peers on the council as well as NFA staff, and develop your skills in areas such as communication, presentation, budgeting and marketing.

 There'll be opportunities for members to take part in NFA Board and Council meetings, plus informal training around applying for jobs in sport.

 And we'll help you to link up with other partner organisations.

It could be a useful addition to your CV, or when applying for University.



We've loaded some example job descriptions below to give you an idea of the sorts of tasks and experience you could gain.
