#31 Days of Youth – Demetri Addison

As we continue to celebrate our outstanding youth for this month, we want to highlight one of this year’s Diana Award recipients, Demetri Addison. Demetri, a Jamaican youth, has worked continuously alongside full-time education, employment, and his undergraduate degree to advocate for young people in the face of rising youth violence. This ranges from mentoring other boys at risk of exclusion at his school to appearing on national television, providing consultancy about how to use social media safely, and giving evidence about solutions to knife crime in Parliament. Demetri studies Criminology at university and maintains his contact with advocacy initiatives in Parliament as well as representing the Roadworks music education programme as a fully trained ambassador by supporting delivery workshops across London.
