Name: Satpal Singh Bansal
How long have you been a Youth Advisor for?
Just over a year – joined in 2011
Your highlight as a Youth Advisor?
Being able to make something that can not only benefit us but others in our community
Describe the Youth Advisory Group in 3 words:
Friendly, Diverse and Fun
Favourite thing about National Maritime Museum:
The collections held within the Archives, we are able to see and touch items that were linked to events that have made history, such as an autographed piece from the night of the Titanic disaster
Why should other people join the Youth Advisory Group?
We are a fun and friendly group to be a part of. Not only does the Youth Advisory Group offer educational values for young people to make a positive change within the Museum, it is able to provide experience working within a group, project managing and able to communicate with a variety of different people such as curators and the public

What do you want to do in the future and is being a Youth Advisor helping you get there?
I would like to become a solicitor. Being part of YAG has allowed me to gain confidence when communicating with new and interesting people as well as sticking to deadlines throughout projects
