What a volunteer has to say:

"My name is Tanya and I started volunteering in the Chill Out Centre in January 2011 as a tuck shop worker - it was my job to deal with the customers and sell them sweets, drinks, and crisps. I had to handle money and stock and ensure everything was running smoothly.

When I turned 18 I came out of the tuck shop and started volunteering as a youth worker - working with the young people that used the youth club. This gave me a lot more responsibility and a greater opportunity to engage with the young people. 

Since then I have been offered a paid job as a youth activity worker (which meant I was getting paid to do what I did voluntarily!) and that definitely wouldn't have happened if I didn't start volunteering.

I made loads of new friends, and gained loads of really valuable experience I wouldn't have gotten elsewhere! I recommend volunteering to anyone. It's a great way to get experience and meet new people.  

My CV now looks amazing as I've been on loads of FREE training courses such as health and safety, first aid, suicide prevention, alcohol, drug, and tobacco awareness, anti-bullying, tacking homophobia training, and even gotten 2 qualifications in youth work! I've also been to lots of awards ceremony's and gotten prizes for my volunteering, which feels great!

Through volunteering I've gained skills in

  • teamwork
  • customer service
  • youth & community work
  • handling money and stock
  • health and safety/food hygiene
  • organising activities & workshops

and loads more!

The Chill Out Centre is such a fun, friendly place to spend time in and I highly recommend it to anyone :-) "
