RawMinds Ambassadors Panel
Applications are now open!
Are you a bright spark who wants to make a difference?
Wellcome Collection’s Youth Programme has up to 25 places available on our RawMinds Ambassadors Panel. We’re looking for enthusiastic young people, aged 14-19, who’d like to help shape our youth activities. You’ll already know us well, as a result of being involved with previous projects and events, and want to get more experience of working behind the scenes at Wellcome Collection.
What’s involved in being an Ambassador?
Ambassadors will attend regular meetings and advise our Youth Programme team on projects and events. You’ll also benefit from opportunities that range from discounts in the shop and café to work experience and training. This year, we have a selection of paid opportunities including our Public Speaking project, Saturday Studio support and a new Social Media role. A dedicated member of our team will always be present to support the work of the Panel. We’re looking for people with bright ideas who like to take the lead, are keen to work on events, and are prepared to commit a regular amount of time to Ambassador activities. We will provide snacks at every meeting, and you can claim back your travel expenses (within Zones 1-6).
