He has run youth clubs for 12 years and under and 13 years plus. He became a youth worker because he believes in youth and often feel they get bad press, many don’t get the life chances and experiences of their peers, much of his work in the past has been to redress this balance and give the youth of today opportunity to experience these experiences and to develop their own skills and potential. Ian has lots of experience with the Duke of Edinburgh award and for the past 13 years he has been positive activities and outdoor education manager in Teesside, using outdoor education and sport as a means to engage young people.
