Young Person & Student Advisory Group

We are looking for inspiring, insightful and passionate young people and students (aged 16 – 25yrs) to join the YGAM Young People & Student Advisory group to ensure their insight is shared both within YGAM and with key stakeholders with whom our charity engages. The aim is to increase input and influence from young people and students into YGAM’s work to inform, educate and safeguard young people from problem gaming and gambling.

The advisory group has been established to offer an exciting opportunity to young people and students to be involved in shaping both YGAM and the wider gambling and gaming sector, leading to better understanding, awareness, and protection. The advisory group is not a ‘sitting around talking’ group; it’s a group of like-minded people meeting up and doing something positive to help share opinions and thoughts from your own experiences. There are no expectations of you when you join the group. You don’t have to talk about anything you don’t want to, and participation is always voluntary; you get what you want from it. The group has six meetings per year and is an opportunity to talk about the key issues in the gambling and gaming sector and share insight. Whether it’s talking about the National Lottery to Fortnite you can help shape the future of gambling and gaming to ensure young people are protected from harm.

Who are we looking for?

  • Young people and students (16-25)
  • Ambitious individuals looking to create social impact
  • Enthusiastic individuals who have opinions on gaming and gambling
  • Diversity, and range of views and contribution
