Youth Stem 2030 - Youth Stem Design Summit

It’s official! We’ll be holding our first ever
Youth STEM Summit in 2020!

This virtual event will bring together youth globally for a series of talks, panels and workshops, and YOU can be part of it.

We believe that young people can change the world.

That’s why the Youth STEM Summit will be fully designed for young people, by young people.

We’re looking for a diverse team of 8 young people (age 13-24), who each have different skills and strengths. Whether you’re good at planning and organising, can use social media like a pro, want a new opportunity to use your video editing skills, or just want to share your ideas as part of a team, we’d love to receive your application!

You don’t need any previous experience in designing events to apply - we’re looking for people who are committed to our mission, and are ready to try new things and get involved.

The Design Team will meet regularly (virtually of course!), and you need to be able to commit ~4 hours per week, from mid-August to mid-October 2020.

Applications will open from 12:00 midday BST on Thursday 30th July,
and all applications must be submitted by the deadline on Friday 7th August, 17:00 BST (GMT+1).

The Youth STEM Summit will be a free to attend event (designed for 13-24 year olds), but spaces will be limited and tickets will be available soon.

Want to be the first to know when tickets are released? Register your interest, and we’ll keep you up to date via our E-newsletter!

What can I get out of being involved?

All of the Youth STEM Summit Design Team will:

  • Receive a personalised reference from our Founder & CEO

  • Gain experience of planning an event, and develop skills such as: teamwork, organisation, event management, and effective communication.

  • Be able to use their involvement as volunteering hours, or to count towards external awards (e.g. Duke of Edinburgh)

  • Get to be part of creating an awesome event!

How to Apply

Applications are being accepted from 12:00 midday BST on 30th July 2020, until the closing date of 17:00 BST on 7th August 2020. Due to the time sensitive nature of this project, we won’t be able to accept late submissions.

In the application, you will be asked to provide some information about:

  • Yourself

  • The role you are interested in

  • Your education/training

  • The details of at least one person (up to 2 people) who can provide a reference.

You will also be asked to answer 3 questions, as follows:

  • About You: Tell us about your skills, knowledge and experience. We don’t just want to know what you’ve done. We want to know how you did it and how that shows to us that you can do this role. Answers should be a maximum of 1500 characters.

  • Why Us?: Tell us what has motivated you to apply for this role at Youth STEM Matters. Answers should be a maximum of 1000 characters.

  • Why You?: This is your chance to tell us what you can bring to the role - tell us about you as a person and how that will make you suited to the role you have applied for. Answers should be a maximum of 1000 characters.

    NB: There are no minimum requirements for response lengths for these questions, but a well thought through application will likely score higher.
    This section can all be completed in a range of formats. You can type straight into the application form, or, if you'd prefer, you can record your answers by video, create a poster or write a song/poem (or something else!) to answer the questions. If answering in an alternative format, please indicate so in the form and send your responses to before the advertised deadline.

Applications are assessed

After the advertised closing date, you will receive a confirmation email from us, telling you that your application has been received. In this email, we will advise you on when you should hear back from us, based on the number of applications we need to review - this allows us to ensure time can be given to fully reviewing each application.
Shortlisted applicants will take part in a remote interview, but don’t worry, we’ll give you notice of when this is happening and what to expect!

Applicants receive outcomes

All applicants will be informed of the outcome of their application. Once we have received all the applications, we’ll let you know when you can expect to hear from us by.

Application deadline: 17:00 (BST) 7th August 2020
