Young Storyhouse supports young people to connect, create, gain skills and build confidence

We are currently looking for new young people to join:
Young Leaders (aged 14-17)
Young Leaders  (18-25)

Young Storyhouse is a collective of groups for young people (aged 5-25) at Storyhouse that meet for regular sessions to provide young people with real-life experience in the arts and libraries, as well as supporting them in gaining new skills, building friendships and achieving qualifications. Young Storyhouse has a focus on creativity.

Members of Young Storyhouse have created, produced and marketed their own film, music and theatre festivals; written, devised and performed brand new pieces of theatre; designed lighting and sound as part of the technical team; completed nationally-recognised awards; organised and led activities for children, chaired panel discussions with industry leaders, and much more.


Young Leaders

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.
