Temi is a truly remarkable young person. Driven by the tragic death of her close friend, she set about starting a truly youth led initiative where young people affected by serious violence can get support and be at the forefront of change in their local communities. 

Location: Colindale, London

Temi created ‘The 4Front Project’ a youth-led social enterprise on a mission to empower young people and  find solutions to serious youth violence. She has designed many intervention programmes that seek to improve the mental health and well being of young people.  At just 23-years-old, she has already received a Cosmopolitan magazine ‘Ultimate Women Award’ and the Prime Minister’s Points of Light Award, in addition to being named IARS Peacemeaker of the Year.  She achieved all of this while studying full-time for a law degree at the London School of Economics (LSE). She is passionate about utilising peer legal education as a   mechanism for catalysing change.

The 4Front project aims to empower young people and communities to improve their lives while understanding and reducing serious youth violence and the systemic conditions that cause it. Through their work, they hope to reduce serious youth violence by raising awareness of its causes and possible solutions. The 4Front project also aims to provide a platform for authentic voices to be heard and empower people to take control of their lives and positively impact their communities.
