Each week will talk to young people who are doing great things in their community. Or how they have overcome failure, or health issues, and so on. What have they learned from life’s lessons that they can pass along to everybody? We will also talk to some adults who are doing great things for young people in their community. Why are we doing this? Because, as a youth charity, we have worked with some great young people over the years. They are the unsung heroes. It seems that we can hear your voice if you are a celebrity or have gone on reality TV and then you become an expert. Here, we are allowing ordinary young people to have their voice heard and speak for themselves. Our sponsors are the John Lyon’s Charity, the Big Lottery Community Fund and Harrow Council. We also like to thank the Young Harrow Foundation and the Voluntary Action Harrow Co-operative. It’s not all serious stuff, but we take everything seriously. If you want to get involved, our details will be in the notes. (W: www.glyfoundation.org.uk E: glyouthfoundation@outlook.com)

    HOW TO WORK IN THEATRE

    HOW TO WORK IN THEATRE

    Sylvia went to the theatre with the youth service to see The Lion King and wondered what happened behind the scenes.  She did not want to act but wanted to be part of the production.

    Brought up in the London Borough of Brent, Sylvia lots of out of school activities but still managed to gain A-Levels.  She played the saxophone, piano and samba music growing up.  Sylvia was part of Brent Youth Matters 2, the first youth forum in Brent and got involved in giving small grants to youth projects in the borough as a Grantmaker.  She was able to go on a trip to Ghana and explore the slave trade there.

    Sylvia trained to become a deputy stage manager and has worked all over the country and abroad.  Recently she has set up a film and theatre production company, BACKSTAGE NICHE and is keen to promote diversity in that area.  There are so many roles in theatre that you might be good at, besides acting.  For instance: lighting, sound, costume and dressing, stage management, set designer, builder, video and audio-visual designers, projection, automation and being a fly person.

    Sylvia states that it is essential to connect with people and build networks.  It is also good to follow your dreams at an early age too.

    Mikey talks to DAN BURKE/YOUNG HARROW FOUNDATION - HOW TO BE A YOUTH WORKER

    Mikey talks to DAN BURKE/YOUNG HARROW FOUNDATION - HOW TO BE A YOUTH WORKER

    Dan tells us how he got into youth work. It has been a somewhat unconventional unplanned route. But a youth work professional willing to try different things and overcome setbacks is probably the best type of youth worker there is.
    Dan Burke is the CEO of the Young Harrow Foundation. Dan gives tips on getting into youth work to transform the lives of young people.
    The YOUNG HARROW FOUNDATION supports over 230 local charities doing phenomenal work for the community by helping them raise money and work closely with the local authority and each other.
    The various charities include LGBT, autism, mental health, sport, holiday provisions, help for those eligible for free school meals, estate work, and so on. All these charities feature on the YOUNG HARROW FOUNDATION'S WEBSITE - www.youngharrowfoundaiton.org
    The Young Harrow Foundation, by being such an integral part of the community, also has its finger on the pulse of young people's needs.  
    There is something for everyone. Take a look at their website. There are 300 plus activities available. If you are bored or feel isolated, need some friends, do something to 'scare' yourself (in a good way). Sign up for an activity. You never know where it may lead.  
    Mikey has delivered loads of podcasts, interviewing many local, exciting, passionate people. We are grateful to all who have participated. We are taking a  break to recharge and prepare for the next journey. As Arne said (and Mikey was in the last Terminator film), We'll be back
    If you have a story to tell and want to be a podcast guest, please get in touch.

    Mikey talks to Colin Powell, the Operations Director of HARROW YOUNG CARERS

    Mikey talks to Colin Powell, the Operations Director of HARROW YOUNG CARERS

    Colin Powell comes with impeccable credentials.
    There are 800,000 plus young carers in the country - and that is a conservative estimate. 
    Young carers look after parents or siblings and other family members. No child should have that responsibility.
    Young carers often suffer stigmatisation or may fall behind with their education, and because of the added burden of caring, they may suffer poor mental health. 
    In this podcast Colin discusses:
    Who is a carer
    Points of law
    Assessment of need
    Prospects for a carer
    Opportunities for carers
    Harrow  Carers offer help and support.   

    Harrow Council has commissioned the Harrow  Carers to support them in ensuring that young carers get all the available help. And Harrow School have been amazing too, offering up facilities to help the organisation.  
    Colin Powell is  caring, knowledgeable and enthusiastic. The borough is lucky to have him campaigning for the rights of young people. No other borough has the same facilities. Even if you are not from Harrow, this podcast will heighten your awareness.


    YOU ARE INVITED
    On 10 June, there is a barbeque at their headquarters. If you are a carer in Harrow, please go along.  
    74 Pinner View, Harrow.
    There's food, activities and lots. of space. Meet other carers. It is good to talk and support each other.


    Find them online: https://harrowcarers.org
    Or email: colin.powell@harrowcarers.org

Mikey Bharj Show

Ordinary young people talk about how they work hard to get to where they want to be, without knowing where to turn. They have to be resilient, and not give up. This is great for teenagers feeling lost at this time.
