Discover Young Hackney – great results

Discover Young Hackney – study of success

In 2011 we recruited a board of 8 young people to form the media ambassadors and drive the 2012  comms strategy for Hackney’s youth arts festival. We made a MASSIVE difference.


3 out of the 8 young people were classed as NEET and all have gone on to paid work or back to education : Daniel came through the youth offending team and has now gone on to regular paid work for us and Art Against Knives. Shannique is in our office 3 days a week, has just got through to the 2nd round of Starbuck funding for her magazine idea and is going back to college in September. Sienna went on to join Hackney young Design & Make and is working for us as a paid blogger!
