Creative Opportunities (Youth NGO)

Creative Opportunities is a social enterprise that facilitates and encourages creativity amongst young people in London. Our user-led projects empower diverse and talented young people to develop creative skills, freethinking, resilience, and confidence with support and guidance from industry professionals. We co-design and deliver youth social action programmes in which participants use leadership and creative campaigning skills to make a meaningful change.

Through one-to-one mentoring and access to a network of peers, industry professionals, and employers, we empower young people with the knowledge, resources and guidance to fulfil their potential, and overcome socio-economic and other barriers to employment in the creative industries.

Our talented team of artists work with other organisations to help them create bespoke media content.

Creative Opportunities was founded in January 2014 with the aim of providing services to disadvantaged young people. We work to reduce isolation, loneliness and poverty by increasing the social skills, sense of community and employability of our members.

Our mission is for young people to learn transferable skills relevant to their own interests, acquire experiences that enable successful navigation of their chosen pathways, and develop an understanding of how they can use their voice for change.
