London Youth Games are seeking to appoint a new Chair to their Board. After six successful years, the current Chair Mark Campbell will be stepping down from his position, creating an exciting opportunity for an outstanding individual to lead the Games through the next phase of their development.

Since its launch in 1977 to celebrate the Queen’s Silver Jubilee, the London Youth Games has provided unique, competitive sporting opportunities for over 1.5 million young Londoners, improving physical health and mental well-being along the way. London Youth Games provides a season of events taking place over 9 months, including both School and Community competitions across 31 different sports. The Games have provided a springboard for many Londoners to go on and achieve in life. Whether sporting superstars such as Dina Asher-Smith and Raheem Sterling or journalist and newsreader Charlene White.

London Youth Games are looking for a Chair who can provide an authentic voice for young people and sport in London. The Chair should be a relatable voice for the Games, who understands the opportunities and challenges faced by young Londoners. They should be able to draw on their own lived experience in working with the different communities that make up London, to help us ensure that the London Youth Games delivers effective opportunities for young Londoners no matter their background, in line with their belief that Sport is a right for all.

London Youth Games are also looking to recruit a new Trustee. The Trustee will become a member of a Board that has the responsibility of setting the strategic aims and objectives for London Youth Games and ensuring that they are fulfilled while having a huge impact on young people today. London Youth Games are looking for individuals who are innovative thinkers, who see beyond the now and want to be a part of providing life changing opportunities using the power of competitive sport to the young people of London.
