The organisers of the Orangebox project are looking for trustees to help lead the scheme.

The Orangebox will provide a wide range of activities and support for the young people of Calderdale.

Building work on the project in Halifax town centre is due to start any day, with the opening planned for October this year. Project leaders are now looking for enthusiastic and committed people with an interest in young people to take responsibility for the development and ongoing direction of the centre, as members of the Orangebox Board. Board members will be required to act as trustees of the organisation.

People with experience in finance and fund raising, human resources, marketing, legal issues, and those with experience of working with young people or voluntary organisations will all make ideal candidates.

There are no specific qualifications required for these positions, although you will need to demonstrate a willingness and ability to share your time and skills.

David McQuillan, the lead person for the Orangebox project, said: “This is a great opportunity to shape an organisation with the potential to make a real difference to young people’s lives.”

All prospective trustees will be required to undergo necessary checks to ensure they are eligible to become trustees of a young people’s organisation. An open information session will be held at the Square Chapel, Halifax, between 5-7pm tomorrow, Thursday 19 January.
