The Frisson Foundation are looking for two enthusiastic individuals who want to develop one of Scotland's most innovative and fastest growing young people's music initiatives by joining our Board of Trustees. This is a rewarding and exciting opportunity to make a difference by providing opportunities for young people as well as a development opportunity for individuals wishing to gain knowledge and experience in strategic management, leadership and governance. Last year the organisation supported and engaged with 81 schools and 2600 children in our Primary School Glee Choir Challenge. We ran over 75 show choir workshops, CPD workshops for over 30 teachers as well as hosting eighteen events attended by over 10000 people in some of the biggest theatres in Scotland. For 2018, we project engagement with over 100 schools and we have two new challenges in development, one of which will see us move into High Schools for the first time and which will be launched in the next few months. This is an exciting and dynamic time for us and our board as we move into what potentially could be our busiest year ever. The Frisson Foundation are interested in hearing from individuals who share our vision of providing opportunities for young people through song and dance helping to build confidence, motivation, social life and learning skills. While no particular skills are required an interest in music would be useful and for one of the opportunities we would like to hear from individuals with an accounting or financial background.
Induction covering our aims, values, roles, the operation of the Board and how we work with schools will be provided. On-going support in our procedures and policies will also be provided and trustees will be supported in their own development. Should trustees wish to be involved in some of the operational event aspects further support and development will be also provided.

Director, Trustee, Board/Committee member or Governor?!
Organisations have different names for the volunteers who are responsible for the running of the organisation - some are called Board members, some are Committee members, some may use the word Director for example. Broadly speaking, they mean the same thing - the people at the top who are ultimately responsible! These are important roles (for which training and support is available) and without volunteers at board level voluntary sector organisations could not exist.
