Group Executive

What does the Group Executive Do? 

All members of the group executive are trustees of the charity and take responsibility for managing the group inline with the charity's vision, mission and strategy.

The group executive undertakes strategic planning to ensure that the group has the resources required to provide fun, challenge and adventure to the young people of Washington and their largely behind-the-scenes role enables adult leaders to focus on activities and programme for young people.
