If you are aged 14 – 18, LGB&T or questioning, want to develop yourself independently and have some fun along the way and meet some new friends – your in the right place!
Youth Almighty is a new project ran by The Lesbian & Gay Foundation and The Albert Kennedy Trust, in venues across Manchester.
We’ll be delivering workshops and activities in schools, colleges and youth groups covering a wide variety of different subjects as well as holding a number of ‘life skills’ workshops such as basic cookery and budgeting.
Lots of LGB&T people have a really positive experience as a young person; their friends and family are really supportive and they are able to get on with their lives, but unfortunately this isn’t the case for everyone. For some young people, the journey isn’t so smooth; they might experience bullying, feeling isolated or have problems at home and that’s why we’re here to help.
We’ll try to make the sessions fun and enjoyable by focussing on lots of the great things worth celebrating about being LGB&T. We meet with a small group beforehand to plan the session to make sure the topics we cover are interesting and relevant to the young people we meet and so far, this has included things such as Pride, coping with self harm, confidence and homophobia.
We’ve had great feedback from the young people we’ve met so far and have hopefully shown that you’re not alone; we’re here if you need us and things can and do get better.
If you’d be interested in us coming to your school/college/group then please contact Lucy on 0845 3 30 30 30 or email email@example.com.
