What is it?
Youth Almighty is a 1-year project for young LGBT living in Manchester aged between 14 and 18. The project is being delivered by The Lesbian & Gay Foundation and The Albert Kennedy Trust in venues and communities across Manchester, which will hopefully help us to reach the young people who would benefit from the project the most.
Youth Almighty is split into two parts; we will be delivering workshops and activities in schools, colleges and youth groups, covering a wide variety of different subjects and also holding a number of ‘life skills’ workshops such as basic cookery and budgeting.
Lots of LGBT 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.
Being in spaces where young people spend a lot of their time, we’re able to talk to you on your terms and hopefully make things easier for young people such as you and your friends. We try to make the sessions fun and enjoyable by focussing on lots of the great things worth celebrating about being LGBT. 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 Rolfe on 0161 235 8035 or email email@example.com.
