essex youth forum
Our Youth Forum was formed in 2014 with a mixture of knowledge and experience throughout the members, who are spread across the county.
Our aim is to give a voice to, and engage with, young people who are volunteering in Essex football whilst overseeing the Football Futures Programme. They also plan and deliver events such as Community Football Day, the Football Futures Camp and our annual awards ceremony.

We hold an annual county Football Futures Camp which is open for any 16-19-year-olds who are currently volunteering within football. The camp brings together a large group of Young Leaders from across the county to experience a series of workshops covering a variety of football themes such as Futsal and refereeing. Following the county camp, Young Leaders are selected from the attendees to represent Essex at The FA’s national Football Futures Camp.
