The Youth Forum will give young people a platform to share their views and influence those involved in running the game across the County. The Forum will also provide experiences and personal development opportunities to benefit members in their future careers.
With over 20,000 young people playing football weekly, representation is important for Hertfordshire FA and the Youth Forum will enable us to engage directly with young people and take their views on board. This will help us in shaping the future direction of youth football in our county, ensuring clubs and leagues deliver a high quality football experience that meets the needs of young people.
Youth Forum Vision: The Hertfordshire FA Youth Forum will be the voice to represent young people involved in football across Hertfordshire. The Youth Forum will inspire change and leave a lasting legacy to shape and develop the future of the game.
Can you help us shape the future of the game?
We are looking for young people who are prepared to give up some of their time to share their views on football in Hertfordshire and how it could be improved. We envisage meetings will be held every few months with the opportunity to be involved with projects in between.
What are the requirements?
The Youth Forum is open to young people living in Hertfordshire aged 16-25. We welcome individuals of all backgrounds to be a part of the Forum.
The only requirements are to come to meetings with a willingness to talk to young people around the county, reflect their experience and play your part in creating change in football, with Hertfordshire FA.
