Work for us

“The transition from being a senior LYT member to becoming a drama tutor for LYT across all age groups has been intrinsically rewarding.  Not solely down to my development from teenager to adult but because it has allowed me to pass my knowledge and experience on to the young participants. I believe LYT has given me a great opportunity to give back to the community the positive things I have managed to gain out of it, not many people can say this.”
