    Get into Grounds

    The IOG's Young Board of Directors (YBD) was created in 2011, when a group of talented young turf professionals were brought together to encourage young people into the industry.

The YBD are leading the Institute's 'Get into Grounds' strategy encouraging 14-16 year olds, school leavers and young people to consider a career in groundsmanship. Most members of the group entered the industry by volunteering at a local sports club and learnt the skills and gained the experience they needed as they went along.
