Our Project work
We’ve had fun, we’ve had tantrums and more importantly we understand how to run successful youth led projects with hard to reach young people.
YHWorld : An online magazine written by a network of young creatives to uncover and share London’s wealth of youth opportunities, YH offers ongoing work experience and both feeds and distributes our other work.
Results: 10k page impressions a month, 600 blog views and a network of 200+ young creatives

Evolution NOW : Politics is our means of effecting change and yet 48% of under 24’s didn’t register to vote in the 2010 elections. Lem Leon won YIA funding from the British Council to find creative ways of engaging young people with politics.
Keep it Brief : An Unltd funded pilot scheme offered young people training in advertising and communication as they worked on live briefs for both Hackney Hounds and HYPE.
