What a great course! This filmmaking course was viewed as a huge achievement for Leicester City YOS in terms of overall outcomes. The YFA tutor created a great learning environment for young people who are often viewed as very difficult to engage. There was a real sense of achievement from the young people who were awarded for their achievement at an awards ceremony at the Y Theatre in Leicester (courtesy of Leicester YMCA).  The YFA tutor attended this event and was able to share in the jubilation of the young people along with YOS staff and parents/relatives.  We would definitely recommend this to others!"

YFA delivers Summer Uni filmmaking courses as part of the UNITAS SUMMER ARTS PROGRAMME in partnership with Youth Offending Teams (YOTs) across the UK.

Typically 10-15 days in length, these courses can be Arts Award Accredited (Bronze) by arrangement.

Our partners over the past year have included Leicester Youth Offending Team, the London Borough of Southwark and the Youth Justice Board.

YFA provide all the filmmaking equipment and facilitators who are highly experienced in working with young people within the prison justice system. YFA works closely with the YOT to deliver a high quality course with measurable outcomes.

If your YOT would be interested in partnering with YFA to run a filmmaking course, please contact us for further details.
