Young Leaders

Welcome to the Creative Commons Young Leaders Resource Suite!

This snazzy online learning space has been handcrafted by the teams at Youth Theatre Arts Scotland and Youth Theatre Ireland.  It is designed to help young people, emerging leaders and those new to the youth theatre to develop creative skills and an entrepreneurial spirit as well as a deeper understanding of the pathways available in the sector.  Does this sound like you? Well, you’ve come to the right place, you lucky thing!


The Young Leaders Resource has a curated selection of Toolkits and Films to help you take a first or next step in your creative practice. You will find advice and guidance on getting started as a leader or setting up a new group.  There are also lots of examples, resources and inspiration from groups and artists who’ve been there before. And if you want to connect with others search for training and leadership opportunities in Scotland and Ireland.

We hope this site offers you the support you need as a young leader, but please get in touch with us if you want to seek advice from a friendly human – we can also provide those!  Enjoy!
