Young Directors

As a member of the IiC board of Directors, the young directors help to make the decisions which affect every member of IiC. They are the glue that binds the board to the rest of the IiC organisation and brings the two entities together.

As a Young Director we also support the Decisions group within the organisation (The group that shapes and steers IiC) and makes sure that young people’s ideas from this group feed into the board so the organisation is working the best it can be.

Our current Young Directors are: Adam Clark, Amber Turner Smith and Charlie Pybus. Meet our directors below.

Adam Clark

Hi I’m Adam, I’ve been involved with Investing in Children (IIC) for nearly a year, it has improved my self-esteem and confidence after 14 traumatic years of being a victim of bullying, I have taken part in Decisions group meetings, Waddington street YASC group, and became a young director last year (2019). Waddington street YASC has inspired me to start my own anti-bullying campaign called Together Against Bullying which promotes the ability for young people to talk to other young people about their experiences as a victim of bullying and aims to emphasise the links between long term bullying and mental health problems. From my own experience I understand how difficult it is to talk to an adult about bullying. And many anti bullying campaigns and organisations do not have a young people’s group. I know this because I have been involved with two other anti-bullying organisations: North East Bikers Against Bullies and Anti-Bullying Support.
