About IY

Inspired Youth are a multi award-winning, not-for-profit Social Enterprise.

We embrace the creativity and vibrancy of digital media production, arts and participative inclusion techniques to inform, challenge, educate and inspire.

Our drive is to make an on-going positive impact in communities with a particular focus on engaging and empowering marginalised people.

We were born in Jan 2007 in the North of England. Seeing wasted talent and crushed aspirations everyday we created a unique philosophy and committed ourselves to raising the bar.


Our vision

Working with those closest to the issue

Empowering authentic voices, raising aspirations and igniting debate.


50/50 Split

Memorable journeys leading to memorable arts and media showcases.


The IY Community

We enrich our projects by working in collaboration with the best Creative Industry Professionals we can find.


IY Ambassadors

The IY Ambassadors volunteer scheme is a creative progression route for former project participants who show extraordinary commitment, talent or passion.


We enable IY Ambassadors to gain knowledge and experience they are unlikely to get elsewhere. By commissioning Inspired Youth you are directly supporting the development of skills and confidence amongst marginalised groups.
