Get Ready For Work

We’re recruiting Youth Ambassadors for our next major event, starting in January 2020.

our latest event

Youth Ambassadors are given the challenge of organising an event which empowers young people in their community. Our most recent event, Our Bristol, Our World was all about giving young people from across Bristol a voice, so they could tell city leaders what they want the future of our city to look like.
