We are looking to build a team of 12 young people between the ages of 16-24, from across Somerset. The main purpose of the Youth Council is to give young people across Somerset a voice in football.
The newly appointed Youth Council will build on the success of last year’s team. By engaging, inspiring and empowering all people in football and to have a positive impact on and within the game. The Youth Council will aim to achieve this by delivering specific projects and engaging within grassroots football.
Being part of the Somerset FA Youth Council not only looks to develop and represent football within the county, but to also develop its members, professional skills and offer a unique opportunity to be a part of Somerset FA, create and deliver projects and gain support from those already working within the game.
All positions within the Somerset FA Youth Council are voluntary and meeting initially, will be held virtually once a month. This year the Youth Council met on the last Monday of the month 18:00 – 20:00, this is decided each year to suit the Youth Council members.
Once we can, we will look to hold meetings at Somerset FA headquarters in Glastonbury, we will look to start holding meets in August, but this could be delayed due to Covid-19. Meeting dates and times will be discussed in the informal interview, held virtually. (Date and time of informal interview to be arranged to suit you)
