STUDENTS BENEFIT FROM LOCAL FUNDING TO BECOME LEADERS OF THE FUTURE
Wildcats Theatre School have launched their new Young Peoples Leadership Scheme thanks to funding from Stamford Young People’s Charity.
The scheme, which aims to develop students aged 12 and over in their leadership skills works towards an accredited award and supports those who want to volunteer and eventually work in the theatre school.
The school applied for funding to pay for registration to the awarding body, workbooks and certificates which Stamford Young Peoples Charity kindly supported allowing students to take part in the project with no direct cost to themselves.
Caz Dolby, owner of Wildcats said ‘It can be hard to engage young people of this age due to a number of factors including finance and the funding allows these students to take part and develop leadership skills without any additional costs to parents. This scheme aims to work with those who are keen to become Class Assistants and ultimately teachers at Wildcats. Students undertake tasks including leading a warm up, creating workshop activities and researching themes such as respect. One of the first tasks of our Leadership team will be to organise the Wildcats 10th Year Anniversary Ball in the summer of 2018. We would like to offer our thanks for the funding to all at Stamford Young Peoples Charity who have made this possible.'
The scheme is just one of the added projects for those who are involved in the theatre school and is open to all those who attend age 12 and over. Other projects include involvement in festive events such as the Burghley Santa Run and the recent Fireworks at the East of England Showground.
