Amazing Brains Committee at Art Club

Nominated by: Art Club

The Amazing Brains Committee at Art Club directed the majority of youth work activity in Dalkeith during the pandemic. They meet once a week on Zoom, in parks and in forests to run their meetings and make sure that Art Club remains youth led. During the summer of 2020 they volunteered at the Summer Art Workshop where they risk assessed the site, registered participants and assisted the artists. At Junior Rangers they litter picked, removed invasive species, built fences and increased the biodiversity in the woods. Members also ran a weekly online art exhibition and directed a host of creative activities. What an amazing team of young volunteers!
