Our Youth Council offers young people the chance to directly affect what happens at the theatre. We want to hear your ideas on what activities we could do, as well as hearing your opinions on the work we already do with you. Made up of participants from across our youth programme, members meet regularly to discuss existing provision, upcoming activities and future plans. This is a great opportunity for you to have a direct impact on the future of both Mayflower Engage and MAST Mayflower Studios.
To apply you must currently attend one of our youth groups. We ask that you write one paragraph on why you would like to join the Youth Council and send it to us at firstname.lastname@example.org.You might want to talk about activities you’ve been involved in with us, what you like about MAST Mayflower Studios and any ideas you have for what we could do. Applicants will then be invited to a short informal chat about the youth council role.
We look forward to hearing from you!
