The Power Foundation for Young People was set up by English actor Christopher Lee Power.
Christopher had an unfortunate beginning in life, with being diagnosed with speech problems, lack of coordination and hyperactivity. This affected his education and social skills. However with the support of various people when he was a teenager, it enabled him to pursue his ambition, which was to be an actor.
Christopher now wants other young people from disadvantaged backgrounds to benefit from financial support as well as access to opportunities in the arts, through The Power Foundation for Young People’s workshops and plays.
The Charities aim is to help young people to develop skills in team building, presentation and communication, interpersonal skills, and so gain confidence and self-esteem and raise aspirations.
Young people will be able to follow their dreams of working in the arts sector because they will be working with professionals in the industry.
