The power of the Trustee

As we navigate our careers, we all seek opportunities to expand our skillset and gain valuable experiences that can set us apart from our peers. But did you know that serving as a trustee can offer tremendous benefits for both personal and professional growth, as well as make a positive impact on your community?

At YPI Counselling, we are committed to providing accessible mental health services to young people and families in need. Our organisation is fuelled by the dedication and passion of our board of trustees, who play a vital role in shaping the direction of our organisation and ensuring that we are fulfilling our mission. But being a trustee is not only beneficial for the organisation you serve, it can also offer numerous advantages for your own career.

Here are just a few of the ways that serving as a trustee can benefit your professional development:

  1. Develop valuable leadership skills: As a trustee, you will have the opportunity to take on leadership responsibilities and help guide the direction of the organisation. This can provide valuable experience in strategic planning, team management, and decision-making.
  2. Expand your network: Serving as a trustee allows you to work with a diverse group of individuals who share your passion for making a positive impact on the world. This can be an excellent opportunity to build relationships, expand your professional network, and learn from the expertise of others.
  3. Enhance your resume: Serving as a trustee can demonstrate your commitment to community service and leadership, which can be a valuable addition to your resume. It can also showcase your diverse skillset and experiences, making you a more attractive candidate to potential employers.
  4. Find fulfilment: Serving as a trustee can be incredibly rewarding, providing a sense of fulfilment and purpose that can be difficult to find in other areas of your career. By contributing your time and expertise to a cause you care about, you can make a positive impact on your community and feel a sense of pride in your accomplishments.

At YPI Counselling, we believe that everyone has the potential to make a difference in the world. By becoming a trustee, you can unlock that potential and discover the many ways that serving your community can benefit your career and your life. We invite you to join us in our mission to make mental health services accessible to all, and to experience the many rewards that come with being a trustee.
