YOS has received £30k Youth Music funding to deliver a music training scheme over a 2 year period, with AudioActive delivering the training. The project will mainly be based at the YOS studio here at 1 Regency Road. Over the 2 years, this project will:
1)Reach and engage many young people by providing structured, high quality music-making activities and where possible, progress them onto other opportunities.
2)It will also select and train up to 12 committed, talented individuals to become Trainee Music Leaders (TMLs), provide hands-on paid work in the YOS studio, personal and workforce development and ultimately improve the Trainee Music Leaders employability and life chances.
Please note that the funding is linked to Youth Music’s criteria and so participants should be “financially disadvantaged young people from the most challenging of circumstances”. The project is designed to target young people with complex needs, and literacy problems will not be a barrier to participation.
There will be an Interest & Recruitment Day for the Trainee Music Leaders on Friday 16th September at 1pm at YOS, flyer attached; A presentation on how the project will work and who we are looking for will start at 1pm sharp, followed by the opportunity to talk to AudioActive Music Mentors and project coordinators about the process and structure of the training. A flyer is attached and help with application forms will be available on the day. Doors close at 4pm. If your young people are unable to make this date then they will still be eligible to apply, they just need to fill out the attached application form and send back to firstname.lastname@example.org by 3pm on Monday 19th September.
We will be short listing for interview stage on 20th September and interviews will be held on the 27th September.
