Youth Theatre Arts Scotland: Become an Amigo at NFYT 2024

Are you 18-25 years old? Are you interested in developing your skills in facilitation and event planning? Are you looking for work experience in the youth theatre sector? If yes, YTAS have the answer!

Join the YTAS staff team in July 2024 at the National Festival of Youth Theatre (NFYT) as an Amigo. Amigos are our festival volunteers and are vital to the delivery and planning of the event. Over the course of the festival Amigos will assist workshop facilitators, act as compere at the festival performances, plan and deliver the social activities and become role models to festival attendees. Training will be provided in advance of the event and you will be supported 1-2-1 by our Volunteer Coordinator. YTAS will also enrol you on the PVG Scheme Record.

In return for your time and commitment we will offer you:

  • travel expenses (from within Scotland) to and from the festival location in Ayr
  • travel expenses (from within Scotland) to the in-person Amigos training day in a central Scotland location (venue TBC)
  • camping accommodation in the ‘staff camp’ at Rozelle Park (equipment not included, however we can support you to borrow/rent where required)
  • all meals (lunch at training day; Thursday lunch – Monday breakfast inclusive at festival); 
  • pocket money of £80 (to cover any additional expenses) 
  • an exclusive festival Amigo t-shirt
