Support from the #iwill Foundation allowed us to take run employability workshops in local secondary schools. We also set up our Youth Board, and the workshops helped us recruit some inspirational young people. The Youth Board provide a vital grassroots input into our work and make sure young voices are integral in our processes.
“Since becoming a member of the youth board there have been some significant benefits in my life. I was recently asked to an interview and one of the main points of conversation there was my involvement with the youth board. My employer (I got the job!) was impressed by the youth board and I believe it has been a great way to gain insight into business and the workings of the theatre. This insight has also made going to the theatre a more rewarding experience. Another benefit is that I have seen a different, very interesting side to the theatre which has made me more conscientious.” - Member of our Youth Board of Directors
