About Events Boot Camp
Interested in a career in events management? Want to work for charities and social action?
Join us at The Mill on the 8 - 9 December 2018, 9:30am-4pm for a weekend Boot Camp for young people aged 16-22, living in the St James Big Local area, who are interesting in working in events management. The Boot Camp is your opportunity to learn new skills and gain experience supporting local charities and social action in Walthamstow.
The weekend will feature workshops led by experienced industry professionals, and hands on projects. We will be covering:
- Events planning
- Comms and marketing
- Effective fundraising
- Customer service
- Team working
Once you've graduated from the Events Boot Camp, you will be partnered with volunteers running a group, activity or event at The Mill to work on a events project and gain some real world experience for your CV or portfolio.
What did people say about our last Boot Camp?
"I thought it was a really enjoyable weekend and covered a broad range of relevant work topics. I learnt a lot and will take this into my work with charities."
"It is amazing and so friendly!"
For more info, contact Helen at comms@TheMillE17.org
Max 10 participants, lunch and refreshments on both days will be provided.
The Mill is a vibrant volunteer-lead space created by and for the diverse local community in Walthamstow, East London, as a place for people to meet, learn, create and make things happen locally. The charity was created by local residents following a successful grassroots campaign to retain the closed local library building for community use. The Mill is now a thriving community space based in the old library building, offering space for groups to meet, drop in social spaces and an active arts programme of exhibitions, events and courses.
This workshop is being offered free thanks to funding from St James Big Local.
Do you work in events management and live or work locally? Would you be interested in sharing your knowledge and experience with young people? We’re looking for people who would be willing to share their experience by running 45 – 60 minute sessions during the Boot Camp, as well as anyone who’d like to join the organising team for the weekend. Get in touch if you’d like to get involved.
