Youth work is a way for me to make a difference in the lives of young people. I’ve previously done apprenticeships and summer volunteering in youth work and I enjoyed it a lot.
On my first day visiting Salmon, before I got the apprenticeship, some of the staff members played a trick on me which showed me that this was going to be an enjoyable place to work.
I would like to learn how to deal with different situations with young people through my apprenticeship; to help them feel like they’ve been listened to and that you actually care.
Five years from now I’d still like to be doing youth work or teaching.
