Yakoob Seedat uses his interests to make a difference at weekends and in the evenings.
Yakoob coaches children in football on Saturday mornings. In the afternoons he runs a Chill Zone for kids age 5-10, then in the evenings helps run the teenage youth club in his area. As well as giving up his Saturdays, he has also set up for local kids: a football league at West View Leisure Centre for Disadvantaged People, a small sided cricket league, a Tae Kwondo academy, and represented young people in focus groups and at the local Neighbourhood Management Partnership Boards. He does it all of his own volition and describes himself as a friend of the community!
