Inspiring and involving young people
Stories of the World museums are pushing their existing work beyond schools and family programmes to develop meaningful relationships with 14 to 24-year-olds. They offer young people valuable opportunities for skills development and ways to get involved in deciding how the museums will operate.
Over 1,500 young people are working on the projects in in-depth roles such as curators, designers, photographers and consultants.
To support youth participation, the National Youth Agency provides training and development to all the Stories of the World museums, which are now using the National Youth Agency's practical methodologies.
