Boston Townscape Heritage Project, which was set up to reinvigorate historic buildings in the town centre, is eager to encourage young people to take part.
The initiative, which was awarded a grant of £1.8 million by the National Lottery Heritage Fund, will aim to repair features of historic properties at Market Place and Dolphin Lane.
The scheme is set to be completed in March 2023.
Despite pandemic setbacks, which meant its Youth Board of 16-24-year olds were forced to go virtual, activities are hoped to continue as normal during the summer.
Project manager, Matt Bentley, said: “We are going to be having workshops on graphic design and photography for the tour guide training, things like that, to get an appreciation and understanding of the historic environment for those young people.”
Activities that involve the Youth Board include work placements and the chance to work on projects such as performing arts and creating YouTube videos about the town.
Elsewhere in Boston, St Botolph’s church also educates young people on their historic surroundings through partnerships with schools.
Commercial manager at the Church, Adam Kelk, said: “We work really well with our local schools, both primary and secondary, and we offer traineeships and projects through our volunteering.”
