In partnership with socially-motivated not-for-profits, public services, and commercial brands we give children and young people intensive creative learning experiences that not only support them to become more resilient, happy, and well-connected; but create campaigns which are stunningly successful, catalysing important changes in the public’s behaviour and attitudes which, in turn, benefit even more children and young people.
In 2021 we embark on the next phase of the charity’s development by building on our strong foundations, enabling us to scale our work to reach more children and young people; to support more ethical brands to flourish; to nurture more early-career young creatives; and to train and mentor more of the ethical advertising professionals, social entrepreneurs, and collaborative designers of the future. We’ll also be developing a Young People’s Board which will support and advise the Trustees and develop Effervescent’s Trust Fund for our young ‘graduates.’
The Board of Trustees is passionate about being part of this vibrant, innovative organisation and strives to be a high performing team, constantly looking to develop further.
We’d like to take this opportunity to highlight how valuable and important board diversity is to us – and by that we mean people of different ages, life experiences, cultural backgrounds, levels of formal education, and work or volunteering experiences. Possibly more than most, we know that wisdom comes from collectives and does not rely on any one person.
We would be delighted to receive your application if you share our vision and values, and if you have the drive and skills to help lead Effervescent towards achieving even more for children, teenagers and young people.
“ Each time I’ve worked with Effervescent I leave afterwards and something is different – in a good way. I miss it every time it’s over. I miss so many things – the intricacies of the day to day work with young people, the working with a group, the bonds you make with people. I know I’m going to be seeing people from this project for years to come. Because we are like a family, it has been incredible. ”
