Introducing TYP's first members:


Karima Mbarak, of Keep Tlking

Runner up of the Bootstrap Enterprise Programme,

Summer 2018, and winner of the 2018 Room for Young People Breakthrough Award.

KeepTlking is a BAME mental health research organisation challenging misconceptions and public policy through articles, workshops and events, with a focus on young black men under 30. Karima has a passion for writing.


  • Believe in young people and the power of collaboration
  • Have experience of ‘standing up to disadvantage’ through life and work
  • Are serious about harnessing talents to help others
  • Offer an area of expertise to promote and grow impact
  • Connect through ‘The Enterprising Assets Method’ that underpins TYP's ethos
  • Are given space and time through TYP to 'be their potential'

TYP will showcase the work of members alongside opportunities for collaboration with potential partners. It will serve to signpost people’s individual business ventures as well as the Collective’s overall identity as an asset-based resource offering multiple skill areas from the creative arts, design and media, to youth engagement approaches, inspirational training and coaching, programme design and development.  If you want to involve young people, why not work with them? If you want to empower young people, why not employ them? TYP offers an example of how people can collaborate with and listen to each other in new ways. 

Some members of TYP will be financially supported over a period of 3-6 months to help establish their individual enterprise status.  This support takes the form of a tailored consultancy contract for work that is focused on an individual’s personal development alongside a current Team project.  

TYP has been developed by Colin Falconer and Carl Miller.  It is currently financed through the work of InspireChilli, with the aim of offering members paid opportunities to participate in relevant work contracts with InspireChilli as part of TYP's collaborative ethos. It will seek external funding and sponsorship to increase capacity to reach more young people, offering its approach and brand for others to adopt. Current supporters include Bootstrap Charity.

If you want a Team Young People, or be part of the founding Team, please get in touch by emailing TEAM@inspirechilli.com.

What could you do with a brilliant team of talents?
