Posted: 07/05/2019

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.

About the
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 LYT’s activities;
  • Empower participant’s voices
    and support them to contribute to the development of their projects and
    the organisation;
  • Help to maintain a safe
    environment in which participants feel supported and cared for.
