A Volunteer Mentor's perspective

18 January 2019 | All News

“I’m the Operations Manager at the Wickes store in Perry Barr, Birmingham, and I first mentored with VIY on a carpentry workshop project at Eden School. I think VIY is a fantastic project that helps young people to gain new practical skills. Being a parent myself, it’s also good to see schools trying new ways to encourage young people to learn vocational skills that can open up job and career opportunities they hadn’t previously considered. I only wish I’d had the opportunity myself to take part in a VIY project when I was at school many years ago!”
