Join our Youth Board!

Are you aged 14-18? Are you passionate about the creative industries, arts and culture? Do you want to have your voice heard and make a difference to the lives of children and young people across the East Midlands?  

Here at The Mighty Creatives (TMC), we’re a team of creative arts enthusiasts dedicated to transforming the lives of children and young people through creativity, arts and culture. Our mission is simple: we believe that every child and young person should have access to exciting and inspiring creative opportunities – whatever their background.  

For The Mighty Creatives to fight for the creative voices of children and young people across the East Midlands meaningfully, it is vital we incorporate the views, ideas, beliefs and opinions of children and young people in the governance of the charity. 

As a charity working for young people, we need to work with young people We are therefore excited to announce the launch of our Youth Board! 

How will our Youth Board work?

A group of people aged 14-18, our Youth Board will meet monthly to make a meaningful and authentic impact on the work of TMC. As a member of the Youth Board, you will: 

  • Build a network of likeminded young people across the region. 
  • Receive regular talks from professional experts across the sector from a variety of disciplines to share skills. 
  • Feed into TMC strategic plans.  
  • Work towards and deliver an annual Symposium.  
  • Access 1:1 and group support/coaching from The Mighty Creatives’ team. 
  • Have opportunities to represent TMC at events/conferences from the wider sector. 
  • Receive a National Art Pass subscription. This offers free entry to hundreds of museums, galleries and historic places across the UK as well as 50% off major exhibitions. 
  • Gain invaluable knowledge and experiences to help towards your next steps.  

Most importantly, we want to hear, empower and champion your voices, your ideas and what is important to you. 

The Youth Board will meet online monthly. We want our Youth Board to have members from all across the East Midlands, so this is the easiest and most eco-friendly way to meet! However, we are aware of how important meeting face-to-face is, so there will be opportunities to do this throughout the year. If you need support in accessing online meetings, please let us know how we can help.
