YOUNG AMBASSADORS

 

We are launching our Young Ambassadors Scheme in December 2019 and we hope that young people will find that becoming one of our Young Ambassadors will be beneficial to them in so many ways, from university personal statements to job applications, along with all the confidence and skills they will gain from the various aspects of our scheme.

Eligibility
Participants must be aged between 12 and 25. 
Participants must have taken part in Perform in Perth at least once.

·         Categories
         Support
- Encourage and support the entry of a new participant.
      
Promote - Actively promote the festival through giving talks, circulating the syllabus through official organisations such as schools.
       Volunteer

Saltire Award
Time spent in participating in our Young Ambassadors Scheme can be credited towards a Saltire Award.
  Saltire Awards are for young people aged between 12 and 25, so they can record their volunteering hours for over a decade!  The festival has applied to register as a Saltire Awards organisation.  Young people can and should sign up for the Saltire Scheme if they haven't yet and, once they achieve any of the milestones -10, 25, 50, 100, 200 or 500 hours, they are eligible for the relevant Saltire Award.  We can ask them to fill in the registration form or, if they're 13 or over, they can go online and set up their own account https://saltireawards.org.uk/

Young Ambassador Categories - suggestions and ideas
Support can take the form of coaching other performers, encouraging their progress as they prepare for performance at ‘Perform in Perth’ and mentoring them so that they know what to expect.

Promote
can take the form of spreading the word about ‘Perform in Perth’, perhaps by giving verbal presentations to groups of other pupils, both in school and in youth organisations, or even just on a personal basis, such as describing the confidence they have gained from participation.
Volunteering
would mean undertaking age-appropriate duties and probably alongside other volunteers.  These could include marshalling performers prior to their performances, checking off names when performers arrive, changing numbers on the display board, helping on the reception desk, perhaps selling merchandise, issuing certificates, acting as ‘runners’ in the Concert Hall.

·         Becoming involved
Anyone who fulfils the age criterion, and who has taken part in Perform in Perth, should contact us at
perthcompfest@hotmail.com or 07849 745000 for further details.
