Greenbelt Christian Arts and Social Justice Festival: Youth Ambassadors 2019

Youth Ambassadors  Greenbelt 

Calling all 16 to 25 year olds!

The URC needs you! Once again the United Reformed Church will have a presence at Greenbelt, the massive Christian Arts and Social Justice Festival, during the August Bank Holiday 2019. And after last year's success with our amazing team of Youth Ambassadors, the CYW office plan to provide an opportunity for 10 more young people to experience the festival in that role. As part of this new team, your job will be to promote the URC at Greenbelt by taking on shifts in our tent where we provide activities for all and by supporting URC Youth in running Cake and Debate sessions for younger visitors (11-18s). After the event your role will be to promote Greenbelt in the URC, by actively engaging in sharing your experiences around your synod. You may also be asked to take on a specific role such as helping with Comms, vlogging, taking photographs etc during the event and will be challenged to try something new every day. 

Following feedback from last year, we have decided to run a team-building and training session on 20 July to ensure that you are properly prepared for your experience and that you all know each other as a team. Then you will be needed at the venue from setting up on Thursday 22 August to packing and moving out on Tuesday 27 August (though there may be some leeway on this if needed). You will be asked to provide £25 towards costs and to provide your own tent and sleeping bag (sharing is recommended and much more fun too!) and transport but food will be provided along with the outstanding cost of your ticket. We will be camping together as a team and there will be a support team from CYW on site. 

If you're still wondering about it, read what last year's ambassadors had to say and watch these fantastic videos from Jacob and Isaac. You can also look at the Greenbelt website. You can contact the office with any questions or we can put you in touch with one of last year's youth ambassadors if you prefer. Convinced? Why not fill in the application form and tell us why you would be the perfect person to be a URC Greenbelt Youth Ambassador in 2019.
