Youth Theatre Foundations Building Your Youth Theatre 1024x512 jpg

We know from our 2020 Sector Review that 48% of respondents rely on participant fees as their main source of income. In the context of a cost-of-living crisis and a post-pandemic world, how can we ensure our youth theatres continue to be places full of engaged participants?

Following on from our December session where we talked about breaking down financial barriers for young people, this session will focus on sharing practice to ensure that your youth theatre is bustling. Come along prepared to share your recruitment successes, challenges, tips and ideas.

The YTAS sector training programme is supported by funding from the Gannochy Trust and Creative Scotland.

Who is it for?

Managers: For those of you who are running everything from behind the scenes. Training that is for ‘managers’ may include opportunities for other office-based staff.

About the trainer

This session is on the Youth Theatre Foundations theme, but the format is a Swap Shop. YTAS will act as host, but the space is for you to come together share practice and swap practical ideas on a given topic.


We at YTAS are aware of the current financial struggles that the sector is facing. We would like to remind you that bursaries are available to any YTAS Member who requires financial support in order to attend one of our training courses, and will cover any fees associated with the training.
