Creative volunteers wanted

Section:  Dumfries and West

YOUTH Beatz Fringe is looking for creative and enthusiastic young people to get involved in the planning and delivery of its events.

LAUNCH . . .  Provost of Dumfries Ted Thompson celebrating Youth Beatz 2015 launch with volunteers

Leading up to Youth Beatz, the Youth Beatz Fringe is a series of events offering young people many opportunities in their communities.
Previously, these have included sports activities, music events, health and wellbeing days, and roller discos.
Young people on the steering group will work closely with the experienced youth work team to consult with their peers and work creatively to design an exciting new fringe programme.
No experience in event planning is necessary, with training and accreditation opportunities available, but volunteers need to bring with them a passion to bring events into the community.
Councillor Ted Thompson, Provost of Dumfries, said: “I’m delighted to endorse another fantastic Youth Beatz Fringe. It gives our local young people opportunities to experience lots of activities and events tailored for them by their peers.
“The steering group is an integral part in the decision making and delivery processes and provides an opportunity that I urge young people to take.”
If you are interested in volunteering, or want more information, contact Jill Hima by phone on 01387 260243, or email
