Membership to this group has always been diverse, from those coming to the end of primary school to those starting secondary education, those leaving school to those who do not attend school at all and are being home tutored. In some cases this is the only group that some of the young people access as an external activity. The aim of the sessions is to teach life skills through the medium of theatre and the arts, encouraging self-esteem and self-worth – to empower young people on their life’s journey.

In the words of one young person, “ … this group is the best.”
