Greenlight Youth Club in 1976
Founders Background. The Greenlight Youth Club-the key to young people’s future.
Mr. Justin Moore, MBE, Justice of the Peace is a founding member of the Greenlight Youth Club. Over the last 40 years, he served in many capacities in his professional life and the community. These include Race relation Officer, Community development Officer, Social Worker, and Youth Worker.
Mr. Moore has served as Greenlight’s project coordinator since the club’s inception. As a result of that experience, he has acquired a profound knowledge of the borough and its people.
The core of Mr. Moore’s community work involved his advocacy against the 1824 Vagrancy Act (better known as the “SUS Law”) and his partnership with the police and community in Tower Hamlets and Newham.
Mr. Moore is ably supported by a team of professional staff from various disciplines but continues to be the driving force behind the operations of the Greenlight Youth Club. Mr. Moore and his team of professional staff are now developing plans for the sustainability of the organisation.
