Welcome to our Youth Blog!

This page showcases a range of youth influence, involvement and decision making here at YBF. YBF’s strong focus on communication (Appreciative Enquiry model) is as a result of understanding the importance and necessity to bring young people together from across the borough with differing views to explore understanding to achieve change.

The 4 Creative Coordinators are now firmly established as members of Young Brent Foundation. Aged 14 – 17, they are keen to create content for young people across Brent.

The young creatives are involved in all aspects of art from Dj’ing, Spoken Word to film-making and social action projects in our communities. We hope you are as excited as we are to support their blogs, based on their experiences in Brent. From Kilburn to Kingsbury, Harlesden to Kenton and every community in between.
