Why volunteer? - Alex's story

06 June 2014

Alex joined us as a Level 3 Business Studies student from Mid Kent College as he wanted the experience of being in a business environment to complement his studies. Alex’s volunteering journey with MYT has been a perfect example of how volunteering can positively impact on individuals, businesses and communities.

Alex supported the SEND, Business Analytics and Trust Careers Teams in a variety of tasks including scanning and uploading documents, completing and creating spread sheets, formatting online questionnaires and data entry. These are all vital back office functions that directly contribute to the level of service we offer to young people and Alex completed them all to an extremely high standard.

During his last review he reported back about how much his confidence and skills had grown as a result of volunteering and how he had enjoyed working with the MYT Team on the different tasks he had been able to be involved in.

On his last day Graham Clewes, Chief Executive of Medway Youth Trust presented Alex with a Certificate of Achievement and a trophy for being an Outstanding Volunteer in 2013.
