Board of Management

YETI's Board of Management

YETI has a volunteer Board of Management that oversees YETI’s strategic direction.

YETI’s board of management provides overall governance and strategic direction.  The board of management plays a critical role in ensuring that YETI remains accountable and effective in achieving its mission and serving the needs of young people.

The board of management is responsible for a range of activities, including:

  • Developing and reviewing YETI’s strategic plan and goals
  • Overseeing the financial performance and sustainability of the organisation
  • Approving policies, procedures, and programs
  • Ensuring that the organisation complies with legal and regulatory requirements
  • Representing the organisation in the community and building relationships with stakeholders
  • Providing support and guidance to the CEO and senior staff

By having a board of management, YETI can ensure that it operates with transparency, accountability, and good governance practices. The board of management provides a valuable perspective on the needs and challenges faced by young people and ensures that YETI remains focused on delivering effective and high-quality services.
