Launched in June 2016, Activate Youth Board (AYB) is a collective of young people, aged 16-25, who meet once a month to advise the organisation on its programme of work. The youth board gather, usually with tea and snacks, to discuss Activate's past, present and future work to ensure its' relevance to the young people of Dorset. Alongside this, AYB get hands-on experiences with the organisation, such as co-producing Actiavte's Youth Platform 2017. This opportunity offered members of the youth board the chance to work closely with the Activate team, to experience firsthand the inner workings of organising a small scale event and develop skills within the creative industries.
In return for their time, energy and enthusiasm (which is in abundance!) the Activate team support each of the youth board members in a maner that is tailored to their needs, giving guidance, support and time.
