Join Kids’ Own Youth Advisory Group!

Attention all young people who are passionate about making a positive impact in the world! Are you interested in connecting with other like-minded individuals who share your love of the arts, writing, diversity, inclusion, and making change? Look no further, because Kids’ Own Youth Advisory Group is calling your name!

This is a fantastic opportunity for young people to work alongside others in their age group over a few months. As a member of this advisory group, you’ll have the chance to participate in conversations with Kids’ Own writer Mary Branley. Together, you’ll explore young people’s participation in the arts, and specifically, how Kids’ Own can ensure that all children and young people are included in our work.

In addition, you’ll get to meet and work alongside some of our artists, making art and finding out about what Kids’ Own does and advise us on what we should do in the future. And that’s not all — as a member of this advisory group, you’ll also work with an advisor to help shape Kids’ Own’s new equality, diversity, and inclusion policy.

In line with Kids’ Own ethos, we would particularly encourage applications from young people who are/from:

Including but not limited to –

  • LGBTQ+ community,
  • Ethnic cultures and communities
  • Young persons with disabilities
  • Traveller or Roma Communities
  • Young people in care
  • Young people of colour
  • Migrant communities


So, if you’re a young person looking to meet new friends who share your interests and make a real impact, Kids’ Own Youth Advisory Group is the perfect opportunity for you. It’s free to attend and participants will receive vouchers for their time. Don’t miss your chance to be a part of this exciting program – apply now!
