A former professional soccer player who is trying to help troubled youths, including APEX gang members, says society needs to do a better job of including them.

Nelly Yoa, who helped track down a number of youths after the Moomba riots, told Tom Elliott that boredom also played a part.

He said many of the teens, often refugees, felt ‘left out’ of Australian society and found it hard to get a job, or stay in school.

‘Community engagement is probably the priority at the moment,’ Mr Yoa said on 3AW Drive.

‘These kids at the moment are lacking employment.

‘They’re not being accepted at work places, or at school and they just feel left out.’
