Make Some Noise offers opportunities for young people in youth and community venues
Music is always near the top of the list when young people are asked what they like to do in their leisure time. Make Some Noise works with youth and community centres to offer workshops open to all young people in their local area. We target priority areas where large numbers suffer poverty or isolation, for example parts of Stoke-on-Trent which are in the 10% most deprived areas in England*, or rural Staffordshire villages where it's hard for young people to get to activities.
Music making in youth centres close to where they live provides a fantastic creative outlet for young people, giving them alternatives to boredom and street life. Make Some Noise's Sound Check programme is delivered by highly skilled professional musicians in youth centres around Staffordshire and Stoke-on-Trent. Teenagers have the chance to learn instruments or improve their playing, as well as working on song writing, digital composition, performing and promoting gigs.
Each venue is provided with a kit of instruments stored at the youth centre. Young people taking part also have the chance to work towards Arts Award, Youth Achievement and Duke of Edinburgh awards.
We would like to hear from youth or community centres, or any organisations working with young people. If you want to help Make Some Noise make a difference for the young people in your area, then call us on 01785 278 454 or email on email@example.com
