Description

Methilhill’s Community Children’s Initiative (MCCI) are a community led group dedicated to providing local children and young people with opportunities to play, learn and grow. They are in an exciting period of growth as they embark on the delivery of several new projects and services to support young people throughout Levenmouth and would therefore like to expand their Board.

Board members will have the opportunity to get involved with several different activities, including staff recruitment, team building, campaigning, fund raising events and supporting the growth and development of this innovative organisation.

The minimal time commitment is attendance at 6-weekly board meetings with time in between to carry out small actions where required. However, there are many ways to become more involved in MCCI and they encourage Board members who are keen to take on a more active role.

This is a good opportunity for personal and career development.
