YUAF Empowers was birthed by young people. We wanted to know how we could empower them further by inviting special speakers from the creative industries in to share their experiences, challenges and the tools they have developed to be resilient!
Young people told us that they wanted inspiration on the following topics:
Every school is different; every year group have different needs so we work with schools to co-curate the programme topics and match the most suitable speakers to visit!
How it works?
The programme is delivered over a 6-month period in assemblies. Once a month a speaker delivers a 30-minute presentation/talk to up to 200 students in schools followed by a Q&A. The students are provided with key takeaways from each session and encouraged to reflect on each session.
