Do you work with young people?
Our dedicated Youth Engagement Officer can provide 1-2-1 or group work sessions at Leeds City Museum, Kirkstall Abbey or Abbey House Museum, including tours and visits to our other sites. We also provide outreach visits to your youth project or community space. We have successfully worked with organisations including: Getaway Girls, The Carriageworks Young Theatre Makers, The Cupboard, Leeds University, residential children’s homes, foster care teams, social care teams, Youth Offending Service and Strong Voices. We have a strong partnership with the Leeds Council Youth Service.
Our Youth Engagement team offer specialised sessions designed with your need in mind, so why not get involved!
What do young people think about our projects?
“I really enjoy coming down to the museum and researching stuff like the Leeds Suffragettes.”
“I like sitting in the gallery and creating posters and poems on the collections.”
“I love the graffiti art sessions. I can’t wait to see my canvass on the wall.”
“Wow! Our WW1 plays filmed and shown in Broderick Hall – that’s cool!”
