Youth Work Week 2021 - Cat's Journey

READ CAT'S JOURNEY

Started volunteering 7 years ago. Wanted to try something different / rewarding. 

Volunteered in Cornton youth group and with Activity Agreements for over a year.

Applied for job as a YSA, have worked in various community based youth groups in different areas in Stirling.

Reasons why I love being a youth worker ... it’s really rewarding, enjoy seeing and helping young people to progress, it’s great fun! :) 

Enjoyed youth work so much I decided to train to be a primary teacher.

Youth work has taught me lots of transferable skills for working with young people ... this has helped me when I was completing teacher training and continues to help me in my career as a primary teacher.

Still love being a youth worker now! :)
