We were delighted to welcome Sumeya to our Grit team in September as our new Volunteer Co-ordinator. This is what led Sumeya to come and join us:
“I volunteered to take part in the Youth Congress residential in Summer 2017. I had very little knowledge of the programme and had no idea what to expect. All I knew was that I wanted to help make a difference in a young person’s life.
The training programme was intense, it gave me the opportunity to look at myself and understand my thoughts and actions and how these result in who I am.
I came to the realisation that it’s not just about volunteering and changing lives, it’s about working on yourself and becoming the best version of who you are too.
I am now excited to have joined Grit as the Volunteer Co-ordinator. We are currently recruiting for life coaches in Newhaven. If you are or know anyone who may be interested, please get in contact now.”
