Volunteer Opportunity – Commonwealth Sport Foundation Trustee
The Commonwealth Sport Foundation, the new charitable foundation of the Commonwealth Sport Movement, has begun its global search for a Board of Trustees. The Foundation was launched in August this year with an ambition to help address some of the world’s greatest challenges. It will focus on: Youth Empowerment; Equal Rights; Historical Injustice; Small States and Island States; and Sustainable Cities & Communities.
Commonwealth Sport Foundation Chair Christian Brodie said: “I am honoured to have been appointed as Chair for this brand-new charitable foundation, supporting the Movement’s wider vision to create peaceful, sustainable and prosperous communities across the Commonwealth through sport. The foundation has the exciting potential to harness the power of Commonwealth Sport in order to positively impact every citizen across our 72 nations and territories. This is hugely important given the context of our shared history, our global geographic reach and our defining diversity.“
The recruitment of the Board of Trustees is a critical milestone to ensure a diverse leadership team from across the Commonwealth is established. The ambition is to recruit talented individuals from across the globe who reflect and embody the rich cultural diversity of the Commonwealth. We are looking for energetic, committed and capable people to take the Foundation forward to new levels of impact and engagement in the world of sport, development and peace.”
The application process for Foundation Trustee candidates closes December 4, 2020, with the aim of appointing new directors in the first quarter of 2021. For more information on the Commonwealth Sport Foundation and to view the Board of Trustees Application Pack, Click here.
