Building on our successful student creative workshops, Trust in Youth is an exciting and unique opportunity for young people to gain hands-on experience of our work supporting leading organisations. This is available completely free of charge to all of our partner schools.
Following a formal application process and after joining the panel, successful students work closely with Words&Pictures on a number of exciting, high-profile briefs including the development of large-scale youth engagement campaigns, smartphone apps, films and websites.
This approach helps Words&Pictures’ clients to gain insight into the aspirations and motivations of young people, and provides support for CSR initiatives.
In return for their commitment and contribution, students receive an achievement certificate for their portfolio, ongoing support and mentoring from the team at Words&Pictures (depending on their interest), further work experience opportunities, testimonials and references where required.
As one delighted Year 13 student said: “I really enjoyed learning about real-life projects. I’ve also gained some contacts that will help with future career paths.”
