TWILIGHT YOUTH TEAM (TYT)
"To offer support and encouragement to Scarborough's young community to enhance their lives"
Twilight Productions team understands the importance of supporting youth in the community especially after working with young people in various environments over the past 25 years.
To enable the team to 'lend a helping hand', they believe the best people to support them are young people. Therefore Twilight Youth Team was formed. TYT is a non-profit group and exists to identify, promote, increase and provide opportunities and funding for young people, schools, families and local charities in Scarborough.
TYT is a group of young people between the ages of 12 and 18 who have volunteered to help. To support the team are adult advisors who assist as needed.
Twilight Youth Team aims to assist, encourage, involve young people to gain experience and learn skills in performance & theatre, volunteerism and to build permanent & growing funds to meet local youth needs. In implement this, meet with agencies & charities in the community and individual school groups, promote funding programmes, develop efforts to encourage positive youth opportunites, work with adult mentors on collaborative efforts that support the community and continue to gain support for their group.
We would like to thank everyone involved, including outside agencies, for their help in creating our community team. We hope with your support and encouragement we will continue to be successful in our aims and fundraising efforts.
