Giving children who live in deprived areas a voice: ‘Cause You Can facilitates a safe artistic platform for them to develop and share their creative talents.

We fos­ter the skills and atti­tude chil­dren need to become well-bal­anced adults. We build con­fi­dence, resilience and char­ac­ter. We raise aca­d­e­m­ic and life skills. We nur­ture self-expres­sion, team­work and lead­er­ship to empow­er our stu­dents.


 “We have noticed a ‘knock-on’ effect this term. The chil­dren are tak­ing a more vocal part in their class activ­i­ties and peer groups.” Rhi­an, Teacher, Granton Pri­ma­ry School

Creative Leadership Courses

We use music, singing, cre­ative writ­ing, dra­ma, poet­ry, dance, and film­mak­ing to teach social, com­mu­ni­ca­tion, lit­er­a­cy, plan­ning, team­work, lead­er­ship, media and life skills.

All our inter­ven­tions are fun and inclu­sive. After-school class­es are host­ed by schools, libraries or cin­e­mas. They cul­mi­nate in free pub­lic events that aid com­mu­ni­ty cohe­sion and facil­i­tate inte­gra­tion. The cre­ative process is led by the stu­dents: they co-cre­ate their per­for­mances by choos­ing how they want to show­case new­ly devel­oped tal­ents.

Apprenticeship Scheme

Cause You Can offers voca­tion­al train­ing, vol­un­teer­ing and paid work oppor­tu­ni­ties to young peo­ple aged 14 to 25 who have an inter­est in Per­form­ing arts and edu­ca­tion. Appren­tices learn to plan and facil­i­tate the class­es, along­side our Lead instruc­tors. They act as men­tors for the youngest, and help to set up and pro­duce the live events.
