Yorkshire Youth and Music is a community music education company working across the whole of Yorkshire. We provide music projects for children and young people and train the adults who work with these young people. We work mainly with children in challenging circumstances to improve their skills, creativity, engagement and enjoyment of music. We work across all musical styles and work with music leaders who are highly skilled and expert in their fields.

We have funding streams from Youth Music, a current Grants for the Arts grant, and we raise additional funds from Trusts and Charities.

We have a small number of permanent staff in the office, usually between 2 and 4.

  • To collect monitoring and evaluation information
  • To visit projects on location and submit reports based on these visits (having access to a car would be desirable)
