Meet Safiyaa Natha, one of our Youth Workers. Safiyaa is around during our Junior Club sessions helping out with most of the activities. If you see her say hello.
How have you found work at the Blackburn Youth Zone?
I really love working here! It’s the best job to do, all the people and children I work with are amazing and I can’t stop telling my friends and family how much I enjoy working here, it’s great!
What attracted you to the Youth Worker role here at the Youth Zone?
I’ve always wanted to be a Youth Worker, I love working with young people and children and think the Youth Zone is a great place for them to come and enjoy themselves. I’ve always had a passion for working young people and studied a Foundation in Young Children’s and Development. Before the Youth Zone I think there was a lack of places for young people and it’s a great thing to have in this area.
What are you currently working on?
At the moment it’s all go with the Summer Camps! This week it’s Senior Sports Club week which is great fun, and then next week we’ve got the Senior Arts Club week and then the Junior Clubs.
What forthcoming Blackburn Youth Projects are you looking forward to?
I’m really excited about the residential trip that’s coming up, it’ll be great to go out with the kids and staff and organise outdoor activities such as camping.
