Hope in New Youth Workers

Streetworx and Hope Logos

Six young people will have the opportunity to train as youth workers over the next three months, through a new project by Streetworx called Hope.

Their training will include health and safety, coaching skills and how to deliver activities for other young people. Streetworx youth worker, Uzma Bibi, has developed the project and told the Messenger,

“These young people are role models for others, they have already shown their commitment to making something positive happen in our area. We hope they will use their new skills and experience to go on to jobs or further training and that they will make a real difference for other young people.”

The Hope youth workers are keen to work with other projects, for more information contact Uzma Bibi on 07894 395 815
