Young Leaders is for young people aged 14-25 with limited opportunities to connect with others, discover their passion and gain work skills.
We’ve worked with young people to find out what they want and need, and as part of Young Leaders they will receive mentoring, training and given practical opportunities to help them develop, create and grow both professionally and personally.
Young Leaders is split into 2 age groups: 14-17 and 18-25.
Young Leaders are usually referred to us, but we welcome any young people who’d like to get in touch themselves. Storyhouse Young Leaders are often home-schooled, or on EHC plans, are in care or have left care, are fostered, are a young carer, are neurodiverse, have accessibility needs, have low confidence, or have mental health concerns.

You can refer yourself, or someone (maybe a social worker, teacher or parent) can refer you.
