YES Project

The Seed Creative Academy are proud to be a delivery partner for the YES Project, a programme of support for unemployed 15-24 year olds. We provide young people with an exciting introduction into short filmmaking with our 8-week YES Media programme.

The YES Project, funded by the Big Lottery and the European Union, provides young people with with a complete programme of holistic support, enabling them to make a positive progression into education, training and work. The project is managed locally by Voluntary Action Leicester.

Seed’s 8-week YES Media course enables young people to turn their interest in short filmmaking into a passion! The programme provides learners with an introduction to using video cameras, sound equipment and lighting, before progressing onto making a short, creative film.

As well as developing their filmmaking skills, the structured programme of activities ensure that learners develop their confidence, team working skills and motivation. YES Media boasts a host of successes from previous learners who have progressed into jobs, higher education and apprenticeships.

If you are 15-24years old, unemployed and living in Leicester/Leicestershire and you are interested in joining the YES Project then please email: 


"YES Media was a blast and it was great to share the experience with other young people. I would definitely recommend it to anyone interested in film making."
