Our youth Workers arranged an end of Term and Celebration event to Launch our newly funded Project By Violent Reduction Network and Leicestershire PCC -Young Futures.
The aim of the event was to encourage local youth to showcase their talents, get on stage and perform, sing & rap and provide them with a platform to show off their skills to a supportive and lively audience.
We had a super fantastic turnout of local youth attending our open mic night and it further allowed us to engage new youth from the community and invite them to our youth development sessions.
It was positive to see local artists to come and perform their music, which then inspired many young people to also pluck the courage to perform on the night. This has now also sparked a further interest from young people who attend weekly music & digital art sessions as part of our current youth offer.
Young people’s contributions were further recognised by the youth workers by giving them a free meal during the event and cash prizes to the best performers on the night.
