DJ Workshops aim to reduce youth unemployment

Teenagers have been able to get ‘in the mix’ by taking part in DJ workshops. A group of 15 youngsters on the activ8 project enjoyed the workshops at Newcastle College yesterday. The DJ sessions gave the teenagers the chance to try their hand at mixing and ‘scratching’ with award winning artist Daf Price, using CDJ technology or vinyl. At the end of the session they were able to take away their own demo CD with a personally-designed front cover.

activ8 is aimed at young people aged 14 to 18 in Stoke-on-Trent and Staffordshire to reduce the number of young people who are not in education, employment or training.
Jayne Green, inclusive learning projects manager at the college, said: “The aim of the workshops is to get the young people involved in activities that will help increase their confidence.”
