Our Youth Advisory Board held its first meeting on Saturday 23 June and we couldn’t be more excited!
11 tweenagers and teenagers from a cross-section of both local and international schools, take pride of place on this Board. They occupy one of the most important positions of governance at Redwood Universal: advising and providing feedback to our Business Advisory Board.
“We can’t have children as the core focus of our business without involving them in the process. As parents and adults, we naturally believe that we know what’s best for children and in many ways, we do. However, there are insights about children that only children can provide,” says Carmen Bruce-Annan, Founder of Redwood Universal. “The Youth Advisory Board will advise how to make our programmes and services more engaging, impactful and useful for children.”
Youth Advisory Board members serve for a period of two years.
