Pathways Inspirational Development > Who > Gemma Rogers
Gemma trained in the art of stage management with the
West Glamorgan Youth Theatre Company. This shaped her understanding
of the arts and their capacity to promote learning. She discovered that
when people are set a creative challenge, the arts become a rich catalyst
for social development.
Gemma is now based with Swansea Youth Offending Team. She is working with young people on a series of documentaries and educational videos to support peer-led programmes, with delivery in schools and in the local community. She is also working with a European mentoring programme, including partner organizations in Portugal, Spain, Belgium and Cyprus.
Due to her fascination with the process of peer mentoring, particularly in relation to preventing youth crime and anti-social behaviour, Gemma is studying the topic for her M.Phil degree at Swansea University.
