Youth Support Placement Student, Spotlight

I joined Spotlight because I love working with young people and was inspired by their mission and incredible facilities. The work they do is phenomenal and the volunteering programme is organised and professional. It was a great way to learn more about how a non-profit runs while getting one on one mentor experience. 

One of the most memorable moments was when I was helping a group of young girls work on an art project. They were asked to create a project based on someone who inspired them. A young girl asked me if she could do hers about me because nobody else had inspired her before. Never doubt your impact! 

I would tell future volunteers to really soak up every moment, big or small. Don't worry about your impact right away because as anything worthwhile, it takes time. Just invest your heart and energy and great things will happen! 

Have your say
