After leaving university in 2015 with a degree in Sports and Exercise Science Bobby immediately started working for Flying Futures. Here he was responsible for the delivery and later management of a range of youth engagement programmes across Doncaster, including; 5 Star Active, StreetGames Doorstep Sport Clubs, the Dame Kelly Holmes ‘Get on Track’ programme and the British Councils Active Citizens programme.
Bobby joined EXPECT Youth in April 2018 and was responsible for coordinating EXPECT Summer 2018, where we were able to engage over 3400 young people in essential life skill building activities, providing over 6000 healthy meals.
He also coordinated a coaching and mentoring pilot project at Bentley New Village Primary School. In partnership with Active Fusion and DARTs they were able to provide an engaging 12 week programme geared around developing essential life skills in children and young people.
Bobby is passionate about providing young people with the opportunity to develop themselves, so that they are better equipped to face challenges in the future. A recent achievement is supporting 9 young people through the Ride London46 – a gruelling 46 mile bike ride which required months of hard work, determination and weekly training sessions in order to complete the event. Bobby is a keen sportsman and currently plays football for Alfreton Town F.C.
