For a decade, the MTC Ambassadors program has challenged and inspired the next generation of theatre makers thanks to the support of our MTC Youth Ambassadors Giving Circle.

Each year, a group of outstanding Year 11 students benefit from a unique insight into Melbourne Theatre Company on and off stage to develop analytic and artistic knowledge they can share with their peers.

Over the course of a year, Ambassadors are exposed to the inner workings of Australia's oldest professional theatre company through a series of guest speakers, workshops and the chance to see MTC productions. These enable participants to increase their knowledge of the arts industry and improve their networking and communication skills. They develop personal growth in building confidence and friendships with a diverse group of students who have a shared love of theatre.

The program is crucial in ensuring outstanding students of drama have an opportunity to extend beyond what is possible in school, and develop expertise that allows them to pursue their full artistic potential with confidence.

We are seeking donors to join our Youth Ambassadors Giving Circle. Supporters have opportunities to meet the students and attend guest speaker sessions with the Ambassadors throughout the year. Please join us and make a real difference in the lives of these 16 young people!
