Dublin Youth Theatre provides a safe space for young people from a wide range of backgrounds, interests and identities, to develop artistically, socially and personally. We do this through ensemble theatre-making supported by top practitioners, activating opportunities to grow confidence in decision making, problem solving, and teamwork. 

We support young people in Dublin to develop skills they’ll have for life, and we’ve been doing it for 45 years. 

As we work towards our 50th anniversary in 2027, we’re getting ready to adopt a new Strategic Plan that centres inclusion and access through meaningful, specific and purposeful engagement with communities we haven’t yet reached. We want to be more effective with our communications, enabling members and alumni to advocate for the work of DYT . Clear and purposeful Stakeholder engagement is a priority for us, as we work to secure and establish a permanent home for DYT, ensuring we are best placed to serve all the communities of Dublin.  


Can you help us? 

We’re seeking great people from all backgrounds with particular skills in communications, marketing, fundraising, finance, business development, legal affairs, policy, city development etc. An interest in the arts is a must! 

Our vision is for DYT to be a beacon for young people in Dublin – with a sense of place and belonging for our members, instilling a love of art, culture, and a fluency in critical thinking and creative freedom, no matter their differences. 

We deliver on our vision by being adaptable to the changing world and responding to the concerns of young people, leveraging our progressive traditions, and our commitment to instilling vital skills and experiences through all aspects of theatre. 

Dublin Youth Theatre is a proud founding member of Youth Theatre Ireland, and we are funded by the Arts Council, Dublin City Council, and the City of Dublin Youth Services Board. The organisation is overseen by a skilled and passionate Board who meet 4-6 times a year, with a number of sub-committees supporting the development and governance of the organisation.
