Vacancies at the Thornbury Area Youth Music Trust:
Trustees (several positions available)
Thornbury Area Youth Music Trust is urgently seeking new Trustees to join its board. The charity provides high-quality music tuition and activities for children aged 4-18 through a successful music centre that sees more than 100 children coming together to have fun making music each week. The centre gives these young people the chance to play in small and large ensembles, with regular performances throughout the year.
With the decline in musical opportunities in primary and secondary schools, it’s really important to us that all the young people of our area have access to music on their doorstep at affordable prices without having to travel further afield.
Several of the trustees have children that are now moving on to other things and so the charity is looking for new trustees to join the board. Trustees do not need any music background and they do not need to be a parent of a child in the centre. We are looking for anyone who can bring new ideas, help with the governance of the music centre and who believes it is important for young people to have access to music education.
A Head of Centre, Administrator and a Treasurer manage the centre along with a team of dedicated music tutors. Trustee board meetings take place around 8-10 times per year and are currently held on-line. The role of Trustee is a voluntary one, with trustees taking on a variety of shared responsibilities, dependent on their experience and preference.
For a informal chat about the role of Trustee, please email firstname.lastname@example.org and one of the current Trustees will get back to you.
