About The Project

YMCA Scarborough’s (Re)ignite project is a new social action group that aims to engage with young people aged 12-18, whilst producing creative ways to talk about what matters to them. Young people will explore various creative art forms including theatre, music, film, podcasting, blogging and vlogging working with expert leaders.


We empower young people and give them a voice on the issues which impact their lives.

We will explore issues affecting the Scarborough area, such as mental health, social isolation and loneliness, coastal deprivation, low social mobility, child and food poverty.

We will look at how to engage with these issues through research, social action and making creative pieces of work.

Throughout the project participants will lead on the direction of discussions before creating work that can make a difference to their lives and the lives of the community around them.
