A rare opportunity to lead and deliver youth theatre activity with young people aged 8-18.
Lewisham Youth Theatre: Since 1987, Lewisham Youth Theatre (LYT) has provided participatory
drama programmes to young people aged 3-24 who live or learn in Lewisham.
Based at the Broadway Theatre in Catford, all our programmes are free to young
people. Each year, LYT works with 200+ young people in sustained projects
and reaches another 400+ through one-off outreach sessions. We provide a
universal service, but target recruitment at young people in need. Over
70% of participants every year are identified as facing disadvantage, across a
range of needs.
Participation Manager role is a rare opportunity to both manage and deliver a
programme of youth theatre activities with children and young people aged 8
18. The role includes youth theatre directing, as well as managing a team
to ensure the support of participants particularly those in need as they
progress into and through our programmes, and on to next steps. The goals of
the post are to:
- Ensure the quality of youth
arts delivery for participants across projects for ages 8-18;
- Support young people facing
disadvantage to access and thrive in LYTs activities;
- Empower participants voices
and support them to contribute to the development of their projects and
- Help to maintain a safe
environment in which participants feel supported and cared for.
