Vital Youth is part of Vital Regeneration, and works intensively with over 200 local young people every year to provide creative, meaningful and career shaping experiences. Through our intensive work we also reach and impact thousands more young people and their families.At Vital Youth we ignite young people’s creative confidence and ability to harness skills to solve problems and improve their own life chances. We do this through the use of advanced digital media tools and by connecting young people to creative professionals and industry.
We deliver education, employment and creative learning programme for 14 to 25 year olds who are at risk of exclusion from school or are NEET (not in education, employment or training). Create+ provides a bridge to ongoing training and / or employment opportunities, through delivering creative digital skills enhancement courses, embedded with English, Maths and life skills, connecting young people back into education, work or enterprise.
