What’s the best part about being a Project Leader?

Learning lots of new skills and being able to use them to make sessions fun and worthwhile for the young people. You really feel like you are being challenged in a constructive and helpful way!

What is the biggest challenge?

Balancing different levels of mentee participation has been a challenge – but with the support of my Line Manager, I managed to overcome this and make the project a success!

What have you gained through the Leadership Programme?

I've gained so many different skills – from behaviour management and volunteer management to feeling more confident about my public speaking. I now feel so much more confident with youth work as well!

Why should other people become Project Leaders?

You get to gain experience and real responsibility by running such a worthwhile programme for young people who will really benefit. The support provided by your Line Manager and other Project Leaders is amazing. I feel so proud of myself when I see how far I have come!
