The Youth Steering Committee influence and shape the direction of The Beatfreeks Collective
The Beatfreeks Collective brings together arts, design, technology, data and community to build incredible stuff that unleashes 'creativity for good'.
The Youth Steering Committee (YSC) is a group of young people (aged 16-30) who influence and shape the direction of Beatfreeks. YSC members will have the opportunity develop leadership skills in business management, governance, strategy, marketing, event planning and will get a whole heap of opportunities along the way from us and our partners.
The YSC isn’t at the heart of our organisation, IT IS the heart of our organisation. Our Youth Steering Committee is a year long governance opportunity as well as a development program for those who aged 16-30 who want to gain board level experience and influence our decision making & shape how the Collective works.
Applications to join the Youth Steering Committee ‘18/’19 have now closed. Please fill out the expression of interest below to get notified when applications re-open in 2019.
Previous Members Of Our YSC
"I worked with the YSC on governance and being a trustee on an arts board. It was a complete pleasure to meet and work with every one of them. The group were sparky, engaged, committed and intelligent. It's not everyone's first choice to talk about legal structures at 7 in the evening but your group asked great questions, with grit, integrity and humour. I can't wait for the next session."
