Young Humanists Events Manager

Young Humanists UK is the voice for non-religious young people. Two-thirds of young people are non-religious. We provide them with the community and platform that their voices deserve. We think young people have a right to be heard and that more should be done to ensure policy reflects their views.

We provide a community and a national platform for young non-religious people in order to change policy and public opinion.

We are seeking a dedicated and driven individual to join our Committee, to assist in delivering the three strategic aims of Young Humanists:
