Our activities at Doorstep will focus on developing leadership, teamwork, communication, creativity and collaboration skills through group sessions, arts and community activities, and event planning, where you will learn as you go. You can work with us in 3 ways:

1) Young Leaders:

A series of 6 x 1.5hr sessions where you will work in small groups to develop core skills in leadership, communication and collaboration using a range of creative approaches. You will leave this programme with increased confidence, as well as improved employability skills.

2) Young Producers:

A producer is someone who makes shows and arts events happen. This series of 6 x 2hr sessions will see you work together as a team of young people to plan a real-life event, that includes live music, theatre, performance, and more!
