TVYT Young Leaders
At TVYT we are committed to investing in our members not just as performers but as creative leaders and as people. It is important to us that each of our members feel as though they have a valued voice and that they're able to use it to shape TVYT.
The Young Leaders group is dedicated to building the leadership skills of it's members and providing them with valuable experiences with various areas within the arts.
This group is not a performance group (although we can't help ourselves from getting on stage from time to time), but is a group dedicated to taking the lead in youth participation within the arts.
The Young Leaders:
A Young Leaders event -A Celebration of Stage and Screen
... and that is only the tip of the iceberg.
At TVYT we believe that Young People are capable of achieving extraordinary things and we plan to provide them with a platform from which to jump.
Edinburgh Trip 2015
Edinburgh Trip 2017
Every year for the past 2 years we have been to the Edinburgh Fringe Festival and this year is no different. And every year that we go to the fringe festival one of our young leaders creates a video of what we did. This year's video can be found below...
‘Illuminate’ was an ambitious event, featuring four promenade performances around Riding Mill, an exhibition of props and videos from previous shows, a Mad Hatter’s tea party, and a devised performance from each of our TVYT groups, performed in the Parish Hall.
To top it off, with the support of their professional facilitators, our TVYT.Young Leaders thought up, planned, organised and delivered the whole event... what an achievement!
As part of the planning process for 'Illuminate', three of our Young Leaders – Eddie, Abi and Amelia – presented their plans for the event to a panel from The Key.
Not only did they fundraise £1,000 for the event, but they have also been nominated for two key awards.
