The Sixteen Trust aims to inspire children and young people through the arts, improving career prospects, broadening minds and inspiring through sustainable and long-term projects. Through mentoring from real-world arts professionals, across disciplines, we aim to bring new ideas and engage young people in the broad spectrum of careers in the arts, giving long-term support, tied into the school curriculum and in partnership with schools and educators.
Resources are to be offered in person and online, via one-to-one sessions and video, with print and other resources. The aim is to provide a long-term, cohesive and comprehensive support to children and young people, throughout and beyond their secondary education, using a network of successful, relatable and approachable individuals, who were themselves once in the UK education system.
If you can see it, you can be it.
