Jump Start

Jump Start is a Warehouse Circus initiative aiming to address the needs of young people at risk of entering, or currently involved with the youth justice system.   Jump Start aims to offer circus to young people from a disadvantaged backgrounds and engage them through early intervention in collaboration with their local school communities and youth justice service providers.  The program not only adheres to the vision and values of Warehouse Circus, but also to those outlined in the Canberra Plan and Youth Justice Blue Print 2012-2022 goals.

Warehouse Circus plan to develop the Jump Start program until 2020, by which time we will have produced a manual on how to run the program, what to expect from it and how to make sustainable partnerships with community and schools to support young people to belong to their communities.  We hope this manual will be adopted by the wider circus community, both within Australia and within the growing global social circus movement.

We are happy to meet up with schools and community organisations and start partnerships to deliver Jump Start in your community.   Please contact the Warehouse Circus office to get involved.
