YOUNG CREATIVE LIGHTHOUSE
Young Creative Lighthouse is an exciting programme that provides young people the opportunity to get involved in creative activities. We aren't just a diversionary programme, keeping young people safe, we provide support to help young people with their mental health and activities that build their confidence and self-esteem and the skills they need to thrive.
Young Creative Lighthouse activities take place within after school sessions and week long holiday clubs. We also have a Saturday Music School for young people looking to learn an instrument.
ONE TO ONE SUPPORT
Young people face lots of pressures in their everyday lives that can lead to challenges with mental health, feelings of stress, difficulties with peer and family relationships and a host of other issues.
Our youth mentor offers one to one support to young people having a hard time, providing a listening ear and support to learn skills for mental wellbeing.
SATURDAY MUSIC SCHOOL
On Saturday mornings between 10am - 1pm we offer music lessons for several instruments including Piano, Keyboards, Drums, Violin and guitar.
Sessions are either one to one or in small groups and are led by experienced music teachers. There is also the potential for children to study for examinations and gain their musical gradings.
On Tuesdays we run sessions for 8- 13 years olds between 4pm and 6:45pm. Young people will take part in fun games, exercises and create drama scenes.
The young people will develop confidence, skills and meet lots of new people.
On Wednesdays between 5:30pm and 7:30pm the Lighthouse Youth theatre takes place in our 400 seat theatre. Young people aged 14-18 will learn how to create and devise their own pieces of theatre.
They will then perform their show to an audience just before the Easter holidays. No previous experience of acting is needed and sessions take place in a fun and supportive atmosphere.
In Harmony is a music programme for young people run by the Liverpool Philharmonic. Their Anfield Youth Hub is at the Liverpool Lighthouse every Thursday from 3:45pm-6:30pm.
Young people aged 10 -18 will learn an orchestral instrument of their choosing and play alongside others in ensembles and orchestras! In Harmony caters for people of all skill levels, so if you’ve never played an instrument before this is the perfect way to start!
Our youth programme is diverse and responsive
As a local charity, embedded in the community we are equipped to respond to changing needs as they emerge, providing activities that respond to young people's needs and passions as we talk to them and allow their contributions to shape our projects.
