Yorkshire Youth & Music is looking for new Board Members
Yorkshire Youth & Music is a community music education company working across the whole of Yorkshire. We hold Youth Music funding for working with children in challenging circumstances along with funding from Children in Need to expand our Deaf Young People and Instrumental Programme across the region.
We are looking for new Trustees to join us in 2019 to help us deliver our mission to facilitate:
– the highest quality music making, related art forms and learning opportunities for disadvantaged young people in challenging circumstances, across all music styles, and according to young people’s needs and aspirations
– excellent training and development opportunities for musicians, teachers and others involved in young people’s music making and learning
Please explore the site further to find out more about us and our work with children and young people across the region.
We particularly welcome Trustees with a background in the education sector, those who are working within the music education sector, or those who otherwise complement the skills of our current Board Members: http://www.yym.org.uk/contact-us/key-staff/
Trustees are asked to attend five annual meetings: four quarterly board meetings (which include an AGM) and an annual forward planning meeting. We welcome active Board Members who are happy to contribute their expertise as appropriate between formal board meetings, in person or via email.
Yorkshire Youth & Music is based in Halifax, West Yorkshire. Ideally, Trustees will be based in the Yorkshire region, but this is not a requirement. We do ask you to please consider your availability to attend meetings in person when applying.
In the first instance, please send your CV and a brief letter outlining what expertise you would bring to our organisation to Company Manager, Jackie Breeze-Settle, via email to firstname.lastname@example.org or post to Yorkshire Youth & Music, E125, Dean Clough Mills, Halifax, HX3 5AX.
The deadline for applications is Friday 29th March 2019.
