Meet Our Youth Team
I have been at Child Dynamix now for over 12 years and I have gained many amazing experiences working with local young people. Being in the Youth Team is challenging and rewarding, and I love that my hobbies and interests can be part of my work, such as art and music.
Hi my name’s Danielle, I work as part of the youth team. I have a few hobbies which range from gardening, reading books, arts and craft and I normally have a tea or coffee next to me. The youth team is a great reward for me as the young people are always showing me new things and getting my brain going and thinking of the next new thing we can all do together. They make my work not feel like work – every day there is something different and the young people give me so much inspiration on which I hope I can give back to them as well.
Hi my name is Dean I have been at Child Dynamix for nearly 2 years now. I started when I did my work experience and then I was lucky enough to get myself an apprenticeship to become a fully qualified youth worker. I have had such an amazing time and such amazing experiences with the youth team. I always wanted to do work with young people and to get to call it my job is a dream come true. I couldn’t imagine been a part of any other team.
Hello everyone I am Mark one of the youth workers here at Child Dynamix, I love all sporting activities including football and keeping active at gym. I also love food (eating more than making) and trying new things. The thing I love about our team is how diverse it is with each individual having great and different talents; and different ways of working with the young people, helping me to also learn to be a better Youth worker.
I’m James, I am 21 years old and am originally from Nottingham. I have been part of the Child Dynamix youth team for a couple of months now. I enjoy football, cooking and being in the outdoors. I studied Youth Work at the university of Hull.
I have been with Child Dynamix for 2 years and have absolutely loved being able to work as part of the youth team. I organise events such as the Hut’s Birthday and find it so rewarding when so many people from the community show up and join in with all of the activities.
I am the project coordinator for Youth in Nature and the lead youth worker for our wild education programme and the Green Influencers scheme. I am a qualified youth worker, forest school leader and ASDAN assessor committed to providing inspirational outdoor activities and educational opportunities for young people, especially those young people who may not normally access the outdoors.
Hi, I’m Ben and I’m the community facilitator at Child Dynamix. My role means that I am here to support families and young people within the community to get active but also to help support their own ideas for creating more active communities and families! In my spare time I’m a keen football coach I and I’m the head coach of a local football club for both adults and youth teams.
I have been a part of the youth team at Child Dynamix for 7 years, including projects such as, Rock Challenge, ASDAN awards, sports tournaments and so much more! Sports are my passion – mainly football and I get to incorporate my passion for sport through activities I deliver. Most of my working hours are spent engaging with local young people in and around the community. I’ve had some challenging times but also had some great experiences.
