The Warren Youth Project
For the past 30 years, The Warren Youth Project – an independent charity – has been providing vital support services to marginalised and vulnerable young people in Hull.
Operating from a former fire station in Hull city centre, the Warren’s staff team offers free support, guidance, training, music, education and counselling services to young people aged 14-25.
The Warren Spoken Word Collective
The Warren’s Spoken Word Collective is a youth led group that begun through the necessity of having their voices heard! The collective have performed knock out appearances at BBC’s Contains Strong Language, BBC’s The Verb, 53 Degrees North, Substance Festival, British Science Festivalas well as informing and shaping debate at Westminster and most recently in Canterbury for Think Nation and Project Twist It.
Not only do participants undertake regular creative writing and performance workshops, they also get the chance to help nurture and expand Hull's burgeoning youth spoken word scene at the ground level. In addition to playing a key role in promoting and organising spoken word activity in Hull, participants have the opportunity to develop key skills which help improve confidence, creative thinking and practical employability skills.
As we move into an uncertain future, it’s crucial that young people get the opportunity to showcase their voices, and this is the driving force behind TheWarren’s Spoken Word Collective.
The Warren Youth Project and SSW project has been funded by ESF in partnership with the Humber LEP.
