Where do you volunteer?
What does your volunteering involve?
Leading a group of youths through a personal development programme. Helping them to acquire and develop important life skills and gain confidence.
What do you enjoy most about volunteering?
The highlight has been watching the team bond, develop and thrive while completing the programme. I enjoyed meeting new people, learning new skills and being able to help the community.
Why would you encourage others to become a Millennium Volunteer?
I have seen first hand how effective the programme has been. It was really enjoyable experience and I was delighted to be able to do it. My advice is that the more you put in, the more you will get out of it.
