Volunteering Stories

Rebecca Melvin, FdA Community Leadership, Vice President Global Youth Solutions

The Global Youth Solutions (GYS) programme has helped me to develop by learning from others.

I have gained new skills, links and networks through peer-leadership and mentoring.

I was recently elected as Vice President of the GYS programme which is an extreme privilege to represent such a worthwhile programme. So far I have been fortunate enough to work in schools and colleges with young people in the UK and Oman.

GYS provides us with the opportunity to unite with students around the world allowing us to explore cultural differences and build self-confidence as well as implementing community action.
