We’re proud to say that we have become well known as specialists in providing exciting and effective targeted workshops projects in schools and community settings for 5 to 19 year olds. Our bespoke workshops provide a truly supportive, creative, relaxed environment and are run by teams of our skilled streetwise young facilitators who address personal health and social issues in a way that young people really get stuck into!

 

In our sessions, everyone is given a voice and we ask that participants show respect for each other and for others’ opinions. Even those who are sometimes shy in group settings slowly come out of their shells and often end up being the ones who enjoy the workshops the most. And that’s great for us, as we aim to help every single young person we meet become happier, healthier and more confident and knowledgeable so they can achieve their full potential in life. 

 

Whilst we love performing our educational shows, we also get very excited about our brilliant, interactive, educational workshop projects! 

How do we get young people excited about learning?

Our workshops are an opportunity for our young people to become the stars of the show! We use a range of fun interactive techniques, so there’s something for everyone, including:

  • Drama

  • Media

  • Art

  • Role-Play

  • Street dance

  • Music

 

By young people participating in these issue-based activities and working in groups with other young people, we meet our underlying workshops aims of:

  • Increasing self-esteem and self-confidence

  • Encouraging teamwork

  • Developing social skills

  • Promoting informed choice

  • Getting young people to try new activities and get involved in the arts

So why not take a look at the pages in the workshops section of our website to see how our workshops fit in with school time and in the community?
