For The Juno Project
We are a registered charity who support and empower vulnerable young women who have experienced significant challenges in their lives. We encourage them to explore their behaviours, attitudes and responses - and develop a growth mindset that will enable them to overcome barriers and achieve whatever goals they set themselves.
Our flagship programme, “This Is Me”, is based on three simple words: “encourage, enthuse and empower”. We are committed to providing support and activities which develops their skills, capacities and capabilities, enabling them to participate in society as mature and responsible individuals.
So, if you’re as passionate about this cause as we are, we’d love to hear from you!
To grow our charity, we need authentic, skilled and committed individuals to join our developing Board. As a trustee, you will be jointly responsible for setting the overall direction of the charity, ensuring that the charity operates in accordance with its statutory duties and delivers its goals. We expect our trustees to contribute to discussions, focus and direct on issues within their area of expertise and provide guidance on new initiatives.
We’d be particularly interested in hearing from candidates who have experience in the education sector.
