The Archbishop of York Youth Trust announces the appointment of its first Director.

The Trustees of the Archbishop of York Youth Trust are delighted to announce the appointment of Robin Rolls, currently Director of Youth Ministry for the Diocese of Leicester, as the Director of the Youth Trust.

Robin brings 20 years' experience in youth ministry. Before his present role as Director of Youth Ministry for Leicester Diocese, he served as Youth Officer for the Diocese of Birmingham. His vision is for empowering young people to make a difference in their community, rooted in a growing faith in Christ.

Robin said. ' I am thrilled and excited by the challenge of working with the Archbishop of York Youth Trust to empower young people to make a difference. Young people are a not a problem to be solved – they are God's precious gift to us. And I am particularly delighted to be returning home to Yorkshire!'

The Archbishop of York, the Most Revd Dr John Sentamu, said, 'So far the Youth Trust has made some good progress, helping young people to be the change they want to see in the world. But now, with Robin's appointment, we are going to have lift-off! May God bless the work of the Trust in bringing hope to young people and their communities across the north of England.'
