Why support us…

Drama can be a transformative tool for children and young people.
With your help, we can offer support for the most disadvantaged children and young people (e.g. in social care, with severe financial hardship, in temporary housing/homeless families) in our area.

Our ‘Stage Door’ initiative enables upto 50 young people to access weekly activity in Acting; Performance; Musical Theatre; Dance; or Singing classes completely free if they come through a referral agency (such as a school or Islington Council’s Children’s Services). Stage Door started in 2017 and is on-going and needs continuing support.
Supporting the Stage Door project will enable YATI to continue to reach the most disadvantaged young people in the borough and ensure that they have the opportunity to benefit from YATI’s range of drama-focused activities and support. We welcome support from any organisation or individual who is able to do so.
Six months of drama classes at YATI has done more than three years of therapy, now my son has recovered from serious PTSD and depression… I don’t know how to thank you
  • 89% of young people surveyed said that YATI had positively changed their lives
  • YATI offers free transformative drama classes to the most disadvantaged children
  • Nearly 30% of YATI families are in financial hardship
  • Classes build crucial life and employability skills such as communication, self-confidence, team-working and ambition
  • 200 YATI students gain paid employment in the performing arts industry each year

We have some brilliantly talented but disadvantaged pupils as they are economically blocked from opportunities that other residents in the borough have access to and are not able to fulfil their potential. . .There is a genuine need for this Stage Door project.’ Norah Flatley, Headteacher, Blessed Sacrament Primary School, Islington.
