Boston Youth Council is made up of young people aged between 11 years (Yr7) and 18 years (Yr13) who either live in Boston, go to school in Boston or both.
Their aim is to provide an interactive presence in local authority life, working with officers and elected members to ensure the voices of young people are heard. To engage in projects to raise awareness of young people's issues and to be a platform for consultation.
We are looking to hold a Teenage Market giving young people a free platform to showcase their creative talents. It’s all about supporting young people as the next generation of market traders and bringing an influx of energy, vibrancy and diversity to our market town of Boston. This will be a perfect opportunity for our market to connect with the town’s population of young people, by providing a platform for them to be entrepreneurial, trial new business ideas and sell creative products.
As well as a creative retail offer, a really important part of our Teenage Market events is performance. Whether it's young bands, dancers, musicians or stand-up comedians, our events are an amazing opportunity for young performers to showcase their creative talents in the heart of Boston. The events are also great for large, local community groups to showcase their unique skills and talents, who also bring along friends and family for support.
This funding will go towards purchasing the package that will facilitate the running of our Teenage Market. Boston Youth Council will play a major part in funding and organising the event with the support of Boston Borough Council.
We are looking to start planning our first event for 2018 and the money raised will fund a two year project of events. Please click here for more information on what your donations will go towards. https://theteenagemarket.co.uk/licence/
We welcome any donation, big or small.
Thank you from Boston Youth Council.
