What makes people like you volunteer? Well, here's your chance to see what they are all about
Where and when did you start volunteering?
I started volunteering with Scouting Ireland in September 2007.
What inspired you to get involved?
I joined Scouting as a Beaver Scout when I was 6 years old and kept on going through all of the sections. Being involved in scouts taught me so much, gave me so many life skills and helped me become the person I am today so it seemed natural to continue my involvement in such a great organisation to help other young people reach their full potential.
What does your volunteering involve?
I am involved in the Venture Scout section (15-17 year olds) which involves weekly meetings, various activities from hiking and camping to environmental work and much more- whatever the young people want to do themselves. I am also an adult trainer and a member of the National Management Committee of Scouting Ireland.
