Volunteer Experience & Causes

June 2011 – June 2012

Project coordinator - Kids Away
Discovery - Student Volunteering Swansea

About the project
Once every 3-4 week (on the weekend) we’d take about 15-20 kids from 10-16 years out on trips. It aimed to help kids gain confidence and independence and hopefully some skills. For a kid to have a day were he or she can practice an activity in a safe and fun environment helps boost all that. Most of the kids had ADHD, low confidence, concentration difficulties, problems at home or similar.

My job
As project coordinator I had to set up and plan the entire year. Budgets and activity plan was handed in in August and then approved by the board.

December 2010 – June 2011

Discovery - Student Volunteering Swansea

Volunteered for various Discovery projects such as Circus Eruption and Kids Away.
