What the Young Leaders say...

‘The workshops were useful because I learned about my responsibilities in the different sessions... it was a great work experience opportunity: I had a brilliant time!’ Georgie – Young Leader

‘I really enjoyed seeing the children working together to create a piece of music. However, I found it challenging to engage such a large group of young children to begin with’ Mollie – Young Leader

‘Things I have enjoyed; interacting with members of the public, finding out how a theatre/arts centre works, and meeting new people… highlight of the summer’ Alex – Young Leader
