Youth Ambassadors

Newham Music’s Youth Ambassadors are a group of young people, aged 11-17, who have demonstrated leadership skills as well as a keen interest in strengthening their development into the creative industries.

We run monthly Youth Ambassador sessions which focus on strategic planning for Newham Music as an organisation, as well as taking leadership roles in upcoming projects and events.

Here are some of the core beliefs of the Newham Music Youth Ambassadors:

  • We want to talk to our peers about music, why it’s important and how we can access it.
  • We want to share the benefits of music and how it impacts our wellbeing.
  • We want to represent our communities through music, making it more inclusive.
  • We want to encourage young people in Newham to explore music.
  • We want to remove negative stereotypes and show that music is for everyone.

The Youth Ambassadors group is supported by the Westfield East Bank Creative Futures Fund.
