The House of Horrors provides a much-needed opportunity for unattached, marginalised youth to engage in a major production. Some of the outcomes from their involvement include, but are not limited to:
- Being at the heart of the organising and roll-out of the production.
- Developing new skills, build on their self-confidence and improving their self-esteem.
- The experience “ownership” of a major event and builds commitment, loyalty and trust.
- Being involved in the decision making i.e. themed room ideas, decorations etc. helps them to experience and understand group dynamics, personality traits and how to work as a team.
- Live hands-on experience of project management and working to deadlines.
- Having their say through individual and group reviews and evaluations.
- Benefits of networking with peers and building lasting friendships through positive peer support.
