Young Women's Film Academy - Seeking two Trustees to support and develop a young and unique charity

The Young Women’s Film Academy (YWFA) is unique in being the only dedicated film academy for young women in the UK, and is based in Newcastle. The YWFA includes both short-term outreach film projects working with young women in communities across the North East, as well as an on-going Saturday Club enabling young women aged 12 years and over the opportunity to be introduced and eventually well-skilled in filmmaking. The films produced are then used to highlight issues of oppression or difficulty to other young women in the region.
