VOLUNTEER AT CREATIVE YOUTH
Central to our key priorities has been the creation of a volunteering programme which now has a core team of 50 volunteers, increasing to more than 160 young volunteers during the festival period, who now work on a multitude of projects. Many of our volunteers come to us with no experience of the arts, and, for many, it has become a life-changing experience. Volunteers are required to carry out a number of roles both throughout the year and especially during the festival.
Ongoing Roles include:
- Administration & Production Office
- Event Management
- Front of House/Meet and Greet
- Marketing & Publicity
- Reviewing and Blogging
- Technical Support
There are a number of benefits to being a Creative Youth volunteer. All Creative Youth Volunteers are part of the Nationally Recognised V Awards scheme, and can work towards a number of certificates. Volunteering with Creative Youth can help:
- Increase skills
- Enhance your CV
- New Experiences
