Callout for Partner Organisations: Kickstart Youth Consultant Programme

As part of the national Kickstart programme, Artswork will be employing up to 30 young people as Youth Consultants across South East England. Youth Consultants will work both within Artswork and with external partner organisations, providing insight and focus around Youth Voice in policies and practice. We are now looking for South East arts and cultural organisations that would be interested in becoming a partner for this programme.

This programme will give organisations the opportunity to re-examine policies and practice and refresh approaches to work, working with up to five Youth Consultants. You would be expected to provide our Youth Consultant/s with a particular project or brief, and work with them to ensure they understand the needs of your organisation. As an employer, Artswork will ensure all Youth Consultants are fully trained and supported throughout the programme.

Any organisation within our region can become a partner organisation from micro-businesses to large scale organisations.  You just need to have a genuine brief in mind and be open to receiving young people within your organisation for a minimum of 2 weeks either virtually or in person.
