Youth-Friendliness of Non-Profit Boards checklist

Tool for boards to assess how accessible they are to youth. Includes recommendations, resources and definitions. A document from the Youth Alliance Project.

Opening text: “The issues covered in this checklist are essential for boards to consider if they want to foster and nurture authentic youth leadership, as well as harness the power adults have to support youth to become the next generation of leaders. The checklist’s content is based on findings from an online survey conducted with 54 youth and adults to determine the youth-friendliness of non-profit boards and what should be done to make them more youth-friendly. It has been created from a perspective that is mindful of the realities of gender-based violence against girls and women and issues of social oppression in general (e.g. racism, adultism, sexism, heterosexism, classism).”
