Gold Artsmark Awarded to Sheffield YJS

Sheffield Youth Justice Service have received confirmation from Trinity College following validation that they have achieved and been awarded the Gold Standard Artsmark award for the work and programmes that the service delivers to young people centred around the Arts.

This is fantastic news for the service and is a credit to the young people and staff who have put a tremendous amount of work into all of the arts based programmes.  Through this work to date they have delivered a performance at the annual 'Youth Word Up' performance as part of the Sheffield 'Off the Shelf' programme, have had young people engage in programmes such as the Summer Arts College to gain arts awards at various levels which for many young people represents the first qualification and accreditation they have recieved.

As they have now become only the second YOT in the country to be awarded the Gold Standard Artsmark to acknowledge this work from staff and young people, they shall be displaying their plaque and certificate with pride.
