Creative Opportunities is a social enterprise that facilitates and encourages creativity amongst young Londoners, supporting them to develop skills, make connections and lead change. Founded in January 2014, we work to reduce isolation, poverty and inequality by increasing the social skills, sense of community and employability of our young members.
Our user-led programmes empower young people to develop creative processes, freethinking and technical knowledge under the guidance of industry professionals. We co-design and deliver employability as well as social action programmes in which participants use leadership and creative campaigning skills to tackle issues in their communities
Our mission is to teach young people transferable skills relevant to their interests and guide them to successfully navigate their chosen pathways, advocate for their own rights and challenge injustice in their communities. Our vision is for all young people to understand the power of their creativity and use it to create positive change in the world around them. Our values are inclusivity, diversity, youth leadership, reflection, innovation and social impact.
