LL Youth Services is a new youth club that will be providing filming and musical projects to young people in and around Harrow and Wealdstone.
Our aim is to tackle the complex issues of knife crime and youth violence facing some of our most disadvantaged young people on a daily basis by offering them a safe space, where they will be able to develop their personal and interpersonal skills as well as gaining a new found confidence and self esteem.
This will be done through peer sessions where we will focus on issues young people face in our society today as well as media projects where our young people will be offered support and training in filming and music production.
We are dedicated to help each child or young person find and explore new interests, and to help each individual to develop, as far as they can, towards being a better citizen of tomorrow.
LL Youth Services will be providing free sessions in intervals of 8 - 12 weeks where our young people will be study:
-Introduction to visual storytelling
-The fundamentals of directing, camera operating and editing
-The basic elements of cinematography
-How to record sound and how it can be used to dramatic effect
-Introduction to the roles of Scriptwriter, Director, Camera Operator, Sound Recordist, and Editor
-Preparing and working on a film set
-Working with professional actors
Urban music is popular with many young people and in particular difficult to reach teenagers. Music can be a great way to entertain, engage and teach children a skill that they ‘want to learn’. Our Music workshops give young people the opportunity to creatively and critically express themselves by writing and performing their own songs and raps! We will also be providing workshops in:
We will be working closely with other media agencies across London who will give our young people a chance to not only further develop the skills learnt with the tutors at LL Youth Services but they will also be given a chance to gain transferable employability skills to better their chances of securing a job in the future.
Our target of £10000 would cover the premises cost and the cost of the equipment needed to start up this project.
