About ENVOY – Becoming an ENVOY Member
ENVOY is our national youth forum and involves young people aged 11-25 from across England. They develop, support and promote our work to young people and NCVYS members on a National and Regional level. ENVOY can be described in two ways, these are, Regional ENVOY Members (REMs) and National ENVOY Members (NEMs).
Regional ENVOY Members (REMs)
All young people joining ENVOY are Regional ENVOY members. They work closely with our Young Facilitators, who support them to work on tasks and activities within their region.
REMs have the opportunity to:
- Work with Young Facilitators to plan regional activities
- Promote ENVOY regionally

- Plan and deliver regional events and workshops
- Attend training courses delivered by NCVYS
