Aged between 14 – 25 years and live in Leeds? Join Geraldine Connor Foundation's Youth Advisory Group!

You will be the first point of call to help us formulate GCF's activites and decide what we do and when we do it. The first project you’ll be consulted on is Adventures in Culture – an opportunity for young people to participate in events, gain mentors and take masterclasses across Leeds and beyond for free. Our Youth Advisory Group will take the lead on the cultural adventures that you want to do – we offer suggestions, but the advisory group will get the final say on what activities to attend.

And this is just the start – the Youth Advisory group will go on to be consulted on new exciting GCF projects in the future.

Why should I join the Youth Advisory Group?

  • Improve your confidence
  • Develop transferable, employable and life skills such as critical thinking, problem solving, communication, and leadership skills.
