SHINE workshops are a mix of Theatre and Life Coaching.
What the heck is Life Coaching? It’s a way of seeing yourself and what you want out of life… then figuring out what you need to do to get it.
You can do this without fear at SHINE because it’s all blended with role-play, fun games and ways to express yourself without feeling scared.
This is a 10 week course perfect if you are looking to build your self-confidence, meet like minded young people and make positive steps towards your future.
It is different from our other projects, we would encourage any young people who are feeling low, or feeling like they need to work things out to sign up. If you are completely new or have been to Toonspeak for a while that doesn’t matter you are welcome here.
But don’t listen to us, here is what previous SHINE participant, Kevin Main had to say about it:
“I know I wouldn’t be where I am today if not for Toonspeak’s SHINE project. Part of SHINE was to say to the group where we wanted to be and if I remember correctly I’ve met most of those goals and I owe so much of that to Toonspeak, the young folk I’ve had the utmost pleasure working with and of course the wonderful people Toonspeak bring in.”
We have put together the following video for you to hear first hand from other young people how it has benefited them:-
This SHINE is for young people aged 14+ who come from Glasgow, that’s it. It is what we call Open Access meaning lots of different people from different areas can come.
