Hi its Dan here I left school about a year ago I am 17 years old, I applied for a job as a Trainee Youth Worker Sans Street soon after I left school. I carried out all sorts of courses such as my NVQ Level 2 in youth work and I have achieved a Sports Leadership Award as well as becoming a Health Champion. I also work with young people every Monday and Tuesday night and have done for the past 10 months in Sans Streets Youth Centre.

Our rolesWe started our role here at Sans Street in September 2011 so far we have gained a lot more experience and a load of qualifications, such as; Sports Leaders, Family Nurturing, Brief Alcohol intervention (NECA), Smoking Cessation Advisor Training (NECA), Money management, Emotional Resilience (MIND), Health Improvment. We’re also undergoing our Level 2 Qualification in Youth & Play Work. We have been on residentials, worked at youth club drop ins, up our local schools on a dinner time and joint events. We are planning our next joint event which is olympic themed and we are looking forward to it.
Next stepsOur role ends in August this year. We hope to find a permanant job in Youth Work when we leave so we can pass on our experience and knowledge that we have gained here at Sans Street. We also want to gain more experience and get more qualifications to help us progress as Youth Workers.
I am Monjer Rashid, Programme Manager, Solar Learning Services and The Urban Games.
We are working with Internationally renowned Prodigal Theatre Company, aka Urban Playground, to prepare a 10 minute performance for the opening of the Olympic Torch Relay celebration events, Newcastle Quayside, Friday 15th June 2012.
A collaboration of dancers, and free runners, expressing themselves through a theatrical display of movements, tricks and flips. Quality and detail are of huge importance, and so the costumes, the soundtrack and the choreography are all custom-made for the showcase. This will truly be an amazing display of the hidden talent in the NE.
You can find out more about the performance and how you can get involved in our activities by visiting www.theurbangames.org.uk
The North East certainly does have talent!!
The project is funded by Newcastle City Council and the Newcastle Gateshead Initiative.
