Youth Advisory Board

Are you aged 16-25 and want to make a difference? We are looking for 10 young people to be part of our first-ever Youth Advisory Board. The application deadline is Friday 20 May at midnight.

What is a Youth Advisory Board?

This is an exciting new project that will put young people’s voices at the heart of Capital Theatres.

Our Youth Advisory Board will help Capital Theatres become a more relevant and exciting place for young people. As a Youth Advisory Board member, you will influence different areas including how we talk to young people and the kinds of activities we offer, and help shape our plans for the future.

What’s in it for me?

As a member of our Youth Advisory Board you will:

- learn more about how a theatre works

- develop skills that can support your future career

- add a unique experience to your CV or university application

- input on projects that interest you

- have a real impact on Scotland’s largest theatre charity

Who are we looking for?

Young people aged 16-25 who live or study in Edinburgh and the Lothians.

Do I have to be studying theatre?

No. We’re looking for a diverse range of people with different interests, perspectives, and backgrounds to take part. If you are interested in making change happen and have something to say, we want to hear from you.

What if there are barriers to me taking part?

We are committed to making our work as inclusive and accessible as possible.

If you have a disability, caring responsibility or another issue that might make it difficult to take part, please get in touch and we will talk it through with you before you apply.
