Shah Rahman

I have been working in Youth and Community setting since the age of 15. I started as a volunteer youth worker, at the same time I was also a volunteer boxing coach for St. George’s Amateur Boxing Club. In 2009 at the age of 18 I started a boxing club. I have been working for Poplar HARCA as a Youth Worker for almost three years. My interest is developing people.

I am senior youth worker for BRAC UK. I led on delivering Beyond Boundaries project which was concerned with developing awareness of global issues and the Millennium Development Goals. I worked with 16-25 year old to engage them in developing actions and campaign for issues the MDG’s aim to tackle.

I am currently working on opening a new provision for the youth and community in Tower Hamlets. I have managed to secure premises and some funding. The project will be open mid 2012. I have recently been involved with CYEC young leaders exchange with Bangladesh; I am maintaining relationship with Bangladeshi participants and liaising with British Council in Bangladesh to work in partnership in near future. International partnership work is something I am planning on instilling in my organisation.
