London, Aug 8 : The attitude of a parent plays a factor in whether the child is truant at school and gets involved in juvenile activities outside of school. A mentor is the most important influence in a child's decision to stay in school and stay out of trouble in the streets. A parent can be the good role model in this modern society. In a London community we found parents dedicating their weekends has managed to keep their children off bad habits.
This dedication is inherited from generation to generation and have kept kids of bad habits and crime etc.
Last weekend the weather was on BYC's side. A great day for a Barbeque garden party combined with a Sports Day. Hats off to the ancestors who established for this community their #Samaj (Association) and the dedicated parents gave the children its youth wing BYC. Baladia Youth Club - BYC founded in 1983 meets every Saturday evening to play sports and social gathering.
Self-funded #BYC provides an opportunity to bring community members together through the development and running of the club. BYC hosts a range of activities to suit all ages and array of sporting skills including badminton, football, cricket, aerobics and other team games that members see fit to carry out. It’s the BYC members that help shape the club to how they want it to be. The Club runs its activities at Queens Park Community School in Willesden.
BYC serve to provide sporting and coaching facilities to increase participation amongst the #Indian #community and to provide an opportunity for people to unite on common grounds: social activities and sports. Parents’ dedicating their weekends has managed to keep their children of bad habits. This is the community model that should be implemented amongst many communities running through the UK.
It is these types of role models that show community cohesion still exists in this fast living modern world. With the youth truanting off school more, and street crimes by youth increasing in the UK streets this is something that could help change the era we are falling into. It takes a lot of dedication of time, positive role modelling and organisation of vibrant youth activities to capture the young mind to keep them out of trouble. Well done to BYC for keeping up the youth community spirit since 1983!
