As a charity Dorchester YMCA  requires trustees to oversee matters and ensure that the club is run on the right lines. Without trustees the club would close. Trustees are volunteers whose main role is to oversee the running of the club without being involved in the day to day management. The role is not time consuming but is essential. As a trustee you would attend meetings of trustees, be involved in discussions and decisions and it would be up to you to become further involved if you so wished. Meetings are usually one and half hours every 6 to 8 weeks. We would like more parents to become involved and would like to urge you to  seriously think about putting yourself forward to become a trustee. Peter Green, the chair, would be happy to talk with you and provide more information. Please contact him via the office or send an e mail to: Leave your name and telephone number and he will get back to you.
