OUTREACH

Through Creativity in Communities, our single-decker Outreach Media Bus coverts into a multi-media studio, providing an exciting space that inspires young people to build their confidence, skills, healthy relationships and communities while providing access to positive role models and expanding their aspirations.  

 

Our programmes extend to Detached Youth Work which provide a creative space for young people to explore art, music and outdoor activities.  Our team go directly to where young people live, on estates, on the streets and in schools to start the journey to support their mental well-being. We help them make positive life choices by identifying their needs and matching them with opportunities within our network.

EMPOWERMENT

We deliver a range of Empowerment workshops, programmes and talks with our influencer ambassadors in schools and youth organisations.  The focus draws on the creative arts to improve mental well-being, providing them with new ways of learning and how to release unexpressed emotions to become more resilient. Our programmes include YUAF Empowers and Mind Over Matter, both of which were created in partnership with our young people. We invite speakers from the creative industries to share their experiences and the tools they have developed to be resilient.

Awesome Coaching takes empowerment one step further by providing young people with one-to-one mentoring to help them see their awesomeness and provide encouragement for their growth and talent.  Our work across these programmes allows us to further our mental health advocacy while providing youth mental health support. We deliver a range of empowerment workshops....inviting influential speakers from the creative sector to share their experiences.....
