China comes to learn from Tottenham
|Delegates of the All China Youth Federation on their whirlwind visit to Tottenham, Friday 29th November 2013.
"China arrived in Tottenham on Friday. The visit by the All China Youth Federation Delegation was hosted by People’s World Carnival Band, who took them on a whirlwind tour of Tottenham including the Sixth Form Centre, Tottenham Hotspur Football Club and the 639 Centre, as well as being treated to a demonstration by Tottenham’s youngest entrepreneur of his Snow Cone company Ochean Freeze, and given an insight into how carnival costume making is inspiring young people to work in the Creative Arts industries.
They were particularly impressed at how People’s World and its partner voluntary groups are working with young people to help them reach their full potential.
Berkeley Gardner from People’s World said “We work with children as young as 8 to encourage them to believe in themselves and to be the best they can be”.
The trip was organised by the British Council to study how Tottenham promotes it’s Young Entrepreneurs."
