Do you want to get creative, learn new skills and make a difference?
If you are a Wellingborough resident aged 13 – 18 and would like to get involved in our next creative youth project, please complete the form at bit.ly/yaswboro and we’ll be in touch.
We have published dates for sessions after October half-term until the Christmas holidays at Wellingborough Library (Tuesdays 3.30-5pm) and St Marks Church (Tuesdays 5.30-7pm), where we will be making a creative film capturing what young people want from their town. You’ll learn some filmmaking skills and get to do some creative stuff while thinking about what could make Wellingborough a better place for young people like you!
Creative Social Entrepreneur programme
If you’re aged 13 – 18, live in Wellingborough and have an idea about something that could be done to improve an issue facing local people, we’d love to talk to you about it and work with you to make it a reality. You can come to us with just the start of an idea or something fully formed. You can come on your own or with friends. We will run free sessions to support you to make it happen.
The schedule will be flexible to fit around you. You can do work with us in person or remotely.
We can also work with schools or youth groups, so if you are someone who works with young people, you are also welcome to email email@example.com to get in touch with Becky Carrier, our Youth Projects Co-ordinator.
About the Youth Forum
Youth, Arts & Skills Wellingborough has set up a Youth Forum of young people who get creative and use that creativity to make a difference locally with social action projects. The project aims to develop young people’s transferable skills and their creativity as well as giving them a platform locally to make a difference in their community.
