Shenice Miles

Trainee Youth Advocate

Shenice has experience in supporting young people as a Young Advisor at Southwark Council and last year she founded ‘The Hayden Miles Foundation’ - a mentoring project designed to support young boys without male role models.  She developed this 6-week programme which was successfully delivered as a pilot at a Primary school in Southwark. 

Shenice became a single parent at a young age and through this she has learnt tenacity, patience and empathy.  Shenice has had to advocate for herself and her son with regards to social services, housing and education and she is now ready to advocate for other young people.
