Objectives

Inspiring young people to broaden their horizons through projects focusing on creativity, community and careers awareness. New Ventures Trust devises, develops and delivers a range of projects in schools and in the community complementing the schools' extra-curricular programmes against a background of increasing financial constraints in the educational sector. NVT is a new charitable company limited by guarantee which was registered in January 2018. The aim is to function as a funding vehicle to be able to deliver projects in partnership with schools and professionals.  Our programmes are designed to broaden horizons, raise aspirations, build confidence, independence and resilience and, above all, to inspire and enthral while helping to develop responsible, reflective young adults.

Activities

We are developing partnerships with schools, colleges, employers, creative practitioners and local business and venues to establish links and aspirations for projects which NVT will then deliver. Projects in the pipeline are in careers awareness, community engagement and the performing arts. As we are a very new organisation, we are looking for trustees and volunteers to build the business, put some strategic development and good governance in place. Our current breadth of experience covers education, the performing and visual arts, project management and communications. We therefore need support on the board in financial management and governance.
