Youth ambassadors

Go on... get out there in the Blaenavon Industrial Landscape World Heritage Site! Become a World Heritage Youth Ambassador!

Join us and you’ll experience the exhilaration of being in a stark but beautiful industrial landscape, you’ll journey into the depths of the earth to see the dangerous world of extracting coal and you’ll witness the power and heat of making iron.

Take on the challenge of helping yourselves and other young people to have a voice in World Heritage Site management. We’ll help you develop your confidence, your self esteem, and your ability to solve problems so you can help us, and the community, really listen to young people’s views.

You’ll be able to volunteer for community events such as World Heritage Day, get involved with organising events, like Winter Wonderland.

If you become a Blaenavon World Heritage Ambassador, you will:

  • Discover and explore the Blaenavon Industrial Landscape.
  • Have a voice in the management of a World Heritage Site.
  • Make friends from all over the World.
  • Manage and participate in events and workshops.
  • Go on fun days out and residential trips to other World Heritage Sites.
  • Get qualifications and accredited training.
  • Attain volunteering hour’s awards and certificates.

We have enrolment weekends every few months, and meet on a Tuesday evening, so go to the join us page for when we are next recruiting!
