Welcome to Abbas

30 June 2022

We recently caught up with out newest youth worker, Abbas, to learn more about his role supporting young people in the Slough area.

Tell us a little more about yourself
I previously worked as a learning / behaviour mentor and cover supervisor at a local school. I really love sports, including boxing and football. I feel like I build great working relationships with young people by understanding them and their backgrounds, giving them time when they need to speak to me – no matter how small the issue is. I bring a lot of patience with me to the role, as every young person is different and some may need more time than others.

Why did you choose to become a youth worker at Berkshire Youth?
When I joined the school my aim was to become a youth worker, as I felt I understood the problems the young people have and could help them and advise them from past experience. When I saw the position with Berkshire youth advertised, and saw the work and activities they provide for young people and also the training they offer, I decided it was the perfect role for me! I enjoy working with young people as it keeps me active and it is a very rewarding role. Youth work gives young people confidence, the chance to meet new friends, take part in a range of different activities and chance to find new hobbies and things they like doing.

What are your hopes and aspirations for the future?
My hope for the future is that every young person has at least one sport or hobby that they enjoy and that they take part in it regularly.
