Working 30 Hours/Week to Transform Themselves and the Community.
Changing Voices employs young people recently released from the justice system to craft musical theatre from their own experiences. It’s a safe space off the streets where they are empowered to overcome their histories, perform their stories in the community and build the skills needed for future success.

“I cannot thank Storycatchers enough…
