Work and Volunteering Opportunities


B.fest Volunteers Needed – Friday 24th May – Saturday 1st June 2019

 Volunteer to support Brighton’s only youth-run creative festival!

B.fest is an annual youth arts festival, taking place in the May half-term week at BYC and venues around the city. It includes a wide range of events and activities across the festival week: visual arts, music, fashion, gaming, film, creative writing, spoken word and much more.

Many roles are needed to make B.fest happen: live events stewarding; events receptioning; event runners; art exhibition set up; running kitchen; sound technicians; music event support; creative workshop running support; publicity distribution. We’re looking for people to be available for the week of the festival itself and two days prior and post festival for set-up and take down. You can be available for anything from a few hours to the whole week.

 Induction Date: Wednesday 15th May 5pm – 6.30pm.

Please fill in the volunteer application form and send it back via email at Email or give us a call 01273 681368 if you’ve got any questions.


We are also always on the lookout for volunteers to join our amazing youth work team. We have a volunteer induction on the last Monday of every month. We are looking for volunteers for the following days and sessions although we are specifically looking for volunteers for our busiest Tuesday night

Tuesday Youth Club 6.45-9.45pm. Tuesday is our lively and dynamic, open drop-in youth club nights. With about 40-50 young people attending per week, there’s lots going on, including basketball, djing, arts, gaming, pool, cooking, with the skate park also open. Session is from 7-9, plus set-up, pack down and evaluation.

Wednesday BYC Active Members  6.45-9.45pm. This is the night for young people who want to get more involved in taking part and making things happen. Discussions, planning, projects, issue-based work, debates, specific activities happen on Wednesdays, as well as our usual youth club activities.  Session is from 7-9, plus set-up, pack down and evaluation.

Music volunteers. We’ve just had two rehearsal studios built in our basement, so we’re looking for volunteers to run sessions with our young people. Initially during our youth club sessions on Tuesday and Wednesday nights (6.45-9.45).

B.Game. B.Game is our weekly gaming group, running in conjunction with our Art in Mind project, from 4-6pm on a Wednesday.

Gigs and events, Friday nights, 6.30-10.30pm. Currently we run a monthly gig night, and are looking to expand this to more regular events. Would especially welcome anyone with technical experience but also looking for general volunteers to help support the events.
