YEAA supports young people by helping them to find work, develop interpersonal, practical and life skills. Using the entertainment industry, we aim to provide a positive outlet for self-expression and a safe space to explore talent, identity, build self-confidence and gain experience. They learn about healthy relationships, character and to take responsibility for their lives and others. We work with young people, engaging those from marginalised backgrounds and those for whom their life experiences or socio-economic circumstances have left them with fewer opportunities. Working with community partners ensures that our activities benefit both young people and the community. CLIENT GROUP: Young People Aged 16-24 Who Are: Aspiring to succeed in the entertainment industry. NEETS (Not in education, employment or training). In care/leaving care. From low-income families. With special educational needs, learning difficulties and disabilities. Others at risk of social exclusion.
