It was great to meet up with James and Toby in Rossington on Thursday. I had been invited work with Young people that had been marginalised from the mainstream Education system. It was encouraging for me to work with this particular group because, like every other young person they have the typical challenges thrown at them in their teenage years, they also have unique additional challenges, which reminded me of my own.
Everyone engaged and it was good to see the staff taking the full opportunity to jam along and interact with the technology. I saw a lot of potential in the young people, and it was good to see real passion for creation being unlocked.
Despite the relentless rain and floods which have devastated our local communities, it was great to see the spirit of young people prevailing. I will be pursuing funding from organisations committed to helping young people in deprived communities reach their full potential.
