We would like to say a warm welcome to Jack, Melissa and Kaitlin into the #iwill Campaign. The #iwill campaign is bringing together hundreds of organisations from all sectors to embed meaningful social action into the lives of young people across the UK. Social action includes activities such as campaigning, fundraising and volunteering, all of which create a double-benefit – to communities and young people themselves.
Jack and Melissa will be representatives of the Ronskwood Community with Kaitlin representing the Warndon Community. They are all very keen and eager to make a positive difference in their community.
When meeting with our Lead Youth Worker Adam Bigford, they identified key reasons for why they chose to be a part of the #iwill project:
Jack would like to help and support people of all ages both at the Ronkswood Community Hub and in his local community events. He also has a huge passion in dance and drama regularly supporting the Drama Tree’s group that run at the Ronkswood Community Hub.
Melissa has a huge passion for P.E and Sports coaching with a vision of getting into the education profession in the near future. This being said she would really like to utilise and develop her skill set in supporting / delivering physical activities in her local community in particular the children and youth groups she is regularly involved in.
Kaitlin is already a huge part of the Warndon After school club and has been taken on as a young leader at her youth group. She has also supported a variety of different Worcester Community events and feels that the #iwill project will allow her to explore news ways of positively impacting her local community. Kaitlin is also very interested in electrics and is currently partaking in various sessions at the Building Block (Warndon) centre developing her knowledge in this profession.
We are really excited to follow their journey throughout the year as they begin to make an amazing difference to their development and their communities.
