Young Leaders supports young people in being creative, gaining new skills, building friendships and getting a qualification. We’ve worked with young people to find out what they want and need, and here they will receive mentoring, training and given practical opportunities to help them develop, create and grow both professionally and personally.
Young Leaders trains and creates opportunities for young people by getting them involved in all aspects of running Storyhouse – from acting and backstage to programming and marketing and more.
