THE Mix youth project in Stowmarket had appointed an exective manager – the first management role for the state-of-the-art youth facility.
Leah Kurta, pictured, will assume the position ahead of the project’s planned opening in March 2013.
Leah, who has a background in social enterprise and youth-led projects at IP1 magazine, predicts an exciting future for the multi-million pound youth project.
She said: “The Mix and its ethos drew me to this role.
“I want to support young people to lead projects, inspire their peers and achieve success even in a difficult economic climate.
“Suffolk young people have a huge amount of talent and I am confident that The Mix will be the perfect hub for developing exciting, innovative youth-led projects.”
