By registering, your challenge and fundraising will help more people like Solomon.
Solomon has been a member at Future Youth Zone since they first opening in May 2019. Solomon joined Future and was dealing with low self-confidence due to his weight and appearance.
Through conversation he built up a relationship with one of the youth workers Sam, who coaches in the boxing gym and fitness suite. Sam encouraged Solomon to give some of his sessions a go and Solomon enjoyed them lots and continued attending them.
Solomon began to see positive changes in himself physically and mentally. He showed an incredible amount of perseverance which transferred to young people around him enabling himself and them to work harder. During sessions Solomon would motivate and inspire other young people, whether he knew them or not, making everyone believe in themselves and the abilities they have.
Solomon consistently displays an incredible amount of talent in all he does. He listens and engages positively with staff members coaching him and upholds Future’s values and sets a fantastic example to other Youth Zone members.
