Help The Youth (HTY) was founded by TechIOSH Raphael Bobie in April 2014. Mr Bobie, a Public Health graduate, developed the idea initially for a Social Enterprise competition, in which the HTY programme was awarded runner up in 2014.
Mr Bobie has a combination of ten years experience in Health and Social Care. Throughout his education, he has dedicated a significant amount of time to his
career. He has worked in primary schools in Hackney as a Teaching Assistant and a Behaviour Support Mentor
Welcome to Help the youth!
Mr Bobie, a determined, ambitious young individual has the potential to undertake any given task. Even from a young age Mr Bobie has been known to have a highly positive influence on others. Additionally, growing up in a deprived area of London and attending public primary, secondary and higher education, Mr Bobie himself knows all too well how easily youth can be influenced by the environment around them. This can result in individuals well-being and education being effected.
Now backed with the knowledge, oral and visual presentation skills acquired throughout his higher education, as well as his key skills in information gathering, has allowed Mr Bobie to develop an understanding about the factors that impact on the health and well being of populations, the emerging and persistent health issues, patterns and measurements of health and disease. Moreover, Raphael has an insight into the critiquing health policies nationally and internationally. Finally all the above has enabled Raphael to gain the confidence and skills he requires in order to get his abilities known so that he can begin to Help The Youth towards a focused and rewarding path, whilst fulfilling his passion.
In 2014 Help The Youth was awarded runners up in the FIRST ever University of Greenwhich Social Enterprise Competition. As a result of a perfectly excuted and gripping pitch.
Most of the early years of HTY consisted of several guest speaking and other promotional events. The founder of HTY was invited to be a guest speaker at the second Social Enterprise Awards. This was followed by an invitation to attend and participate in Chair For Piecing The Puzzle In Partnership: Antisocial Behaviour Sandpit'
In 2018 Raphael Bobie was honored at Greenwich Portraits as a highly regarded alumnus who has made a significant contribution in the field of social enterprise and social change. The project aims to showcase excellence, inspire current students and illustrate the breadth and depth of the University of Greenwich community. The project started in 2016 and has become an annual event celebrating alumni from across the generations and disciplines. Alumni who have already participated for 2018 include Dave Rowntree, the drummer from Blur and Ann Brightwell, nee Packer, Olympic gold medallist in the 1964 Tokyo Games.
