Giving away the benefits
Ever since I was 16 and teaching Sunday School in Yorkhill Children’s Hospital, I have seen the benefit in helping young people to be more. Throughout my career but more especially since completing my Youth Work degree, I have sought to give back to young people and nowadays I do it by coaching them but also in assisting them to take part in projects that will push them and help them grow.
The xpand Life College is an example of some of the coaching work I do with young people. Checkout the Life College website to get a better idea of what it is about.
