Discreet , Caring , Genuine
I'm 51 years old and married with two boys aged 21 and 14.
I have spent the last 35 years working in Youth ministry in my church, organising activities, teaching and running workshops for young people. For the last four years I have also served on the national Youth leadership team of my church.
When I'm not working as an area manager in a catering company providing school meals in South East London, or getting involved in some sort of youth activity, I enjoy running and going to the gym.
Much of the work I've done mentoring young men has been in this particular area. Over the years it's been a topic that has perpetually come up and which always needs addressing as the context shifts with the generations.
As someone who is responsible for employing and recruiting I recognise the importance of good personal presentation when presenting oneself for interview. I have a lot of experience in this area and I'm always willing to share my knowledge. I also have a strong conviction that young need to learn basic skills such as cooking, cleaning, etc so they can support partners and a home when the time comes to settle into a relationship.
I could have really used a mentor when I was growing up. It was a struggle not having someone to bounce ideas off or share anxieties and fears with. As a result of this I have always made myself available to the young men around me so they had a safe place to go if they needed support, advice or just a listening ear. I recognise the difference a mentor makes in the life of a young man, even when they have other positive role models around. I've had many experiences keep the course of my life which I believe have put me in a good place to support young men as they face life's challenges. I've also had the privilege to positively impact young men around me and want to do more with what I've been blessed to receive.
