Pedro Youth Club

  • Razvan Pestean

When quarantine started I've had a lot more time than usual to reflect on what I do and I wanted to start giving back to my community. So I started giving some of my time to Hackney Gazette, a community based magazine. Photographing the people from the community and telling their stories. The first story I covered was The Pedro Youth Club which is run by the former European and British super middleweight boxing champion James Cook. His philosophy is teaching young people values and discipline. He believes youth services like youth clubs are vital in keeping young people off the streets and away from violence, drugs and crime.
