A Little Bit About New4You:
New4You is a Plymouth city centre youth group that runs on Friday nights throughout the year, supporting young people from 11 to 15+ to have fun and develop life skills in a safe environment.
At just 20 years old Dan has already been working with the club for over two years and is now a youth leader within the group. Everyone involved with group is impressed by Dan’s abilities recently the local PSCO said that he showed amazing confidence as a leader, and it is this along with his commitment to the club that makes such a difference to the young people.
Dan’s hard work in organising activities helps to grow the young people’s skills and confidence as one person said: “I felt that if I could do anything!”
Veronica from the club says, “What is outstanding about Dan is that he is a thinker, he produces solutions to problems before you even need to ask. He makes things happen and helps to make the group great for the youth. We love him!”
Daniel now receives £250 to spend on developing New4You Youth Club. http://www.pmchyouth.co.uk/new4you/
