From youths to youth workers

FURD is proud to report that four young people closely involved with the project have successfully gained a NVQ Level 2 qualification in Youth Work, delivered by Sheffield Futures.

Amjid Hafiz, Sandro Vashakidze, Sajida Bibi and Sajaad Rauf all started as participants in FURD's young people's programmes and progressed to do voluntary work with FURD. Amjid, Sandro and Sajaad are all now employed part time with FURD - Amjid as a youth engagement officer, Sandro as a football coach and Sajaad as volunteer support worker, while Sajida is working for Sheffield City Council.

FURD's volunteer co-ordinator Mehrun Ahmed said, "we are delighted that FURD has been able to help these young people to develop to a point where they can support and mentor other young people, from a position of understanding, and to make a positive contribution to the community".
