Dragon Hall aims to enable young people to realise their potential

Dragon Hall is situated in the Holborn & Covent Garden Ward of London Borough of Camden. The area is perceived as affluent and commercial, however the reality is very different.

The young people we work with (and the communities that they come from) face significant area-specific disadvantage as a result of their age, gender, location & cultural/ethnic/socio-economic background.

We work with over 200 young people per week on a variety of projects including after school clubs, internet radio project – Radio Active 101, under 5s drop in, playscheme during school holidays, trips out and partnership work with other youth organisations across London and around the world.

Our recent work in the Tech Hub is already drawing new Children & Young People to it. And in turn they are getting access to innovative technologies like the 3doodler, 3d Printers, Oculus Rift Headsets, Leap Motion gesture control units, radio broadcast equipment and recording resources. We know that this work supersedes any other available to Children & Young People, who are often denied these opportunities on account of age, gender, knowledge, cost or perceived abilities. We are actively Bridging the Digital Divide!
