At HVH Arts we have established a strong reputation for delivering high quality, large scale skills development programmes for young people from predominantly disadvantaged backgrounds. Our Youth ambassadors promote good mental health awareness, work with other young people on our progressive programmes in our Teenage Music Mentor Programme, HVH Arts Scholarship Programme as well as support our younger children in our after-school and school holiday workshops in art, photography, film and music. Our youth ambassador team is a dynamic team of volunteers who represent the charity in a number of ways. They offer young people an opportunity to share their concerns about topics that could affect their future and are advocates for their age group, wanting to implement change to improve society for young people.

Lily Dalley-Clark
HVH Arts Scholarship Ambassador

Being a brand ambassador has continuously allowed me to improve and grow, simultaneously as a person and an artist. There are a plethora of opportunities offered by the foundation that are able to fit all niches of art through courses and workshops, that are led by inspirational and interesting people. The experiences of the foundation and being able to help children through the foundation is rewarding and humbling and I am honoured to be a brand ambassador of such an amazing organisation.

Nicole Moir
Mental Health Awareness Ambassador

I love being a brand ambassador as I feel that it’s a great opportunity for myself and young people’s voices to be heard through the community. I feel a lot has been taken from young people. As an example, the youth clubs, play centres and nurseries are closing down but the issue that has been raised the most is the major cutbacks on youth funding programs. I have a passion for photography and singing/ song writing so I have an artistic background. I love meeting new people and learning new skills and enjoy working in a team. I look forward to and hope to make a change.

TMMP Programme Ambassador

Throughout the music mentoring programme, I have been really inspired and have learnt so many new skills including music production which I have really become confident with. The course has given me confidence to apply for college as well as being able to access training opportunities with Debbi [CEO]. I’ve been able to create my own brand, my own merchandise and I’ll be able to develop my own website too! The programme has really supported me in my future and I am so grateful to be representing the course as an ambassador.

The music mentoring programme has really helped me build my confidence. I am so grateful that I have learnt the art of producing and recording music, as well as really beneficial skills such as artwork, merchandising and lyricism. I have loved exploring professional ventures and ideas in music, which is my main passion. I could not be more grateful to Debbi and the rest of the team at HVH Arts for helping me build my profile. My aim is to eventually help and inspire young people to do the same through this programme.

Youth Ambassador Miranda Barton

I gained a UAL diploma in Art and Photography and am now doing a degree in Fine Art. I was able to share my skills and continue my creativity through volunteering at the photography workshop. I attended the workshops for a few years before I started volunteering, and it has been lovely to contribute to the organisation that has benefited me and others so much.

Working with the younger generation is vital for creating a massive positive change, and I am elated by this opportunity.
