Dominique Parry Parker reads her speech Second Chances, on the effects of budget cuts on prisons rehabilitation.
Dominique is a member of our Young Leaders programme. The Almeida Young Leaders is a scheme giving young people with something vital to say the tools and platform to do so. Each young leader has been mentored by a writer and director to develop their ideas, structuring a speech and skills in public speaking.
Dominique volunteers with young offenders as a mentor in Manchester alongside her degree. "Young Leaders was the first time I’ve done any public speaking. I hope to progress into probation services for young offenders after university and to help reduce repeat offending in young people and to continue to fight for more funding into the criminal justice system."
