“I wanted to work with VIY because I wanted to get into teaching and challenge myself. I enjoy being ’on the tools’ and working with VIY means that I can still do that whilst teaching young people the skills I have gained.

The thing I love most about working for VIY is that I get to pass on my skills and attitudes to young people in my own manner. Seeing a confidence boost and a complete change in some individuals in a really short period of time is very rewarding for me.”

“The ethos of VIY helping young people learn really appeals to me and I really enjoy helping the young people achieve their goals.

I love seeing the look of achievement on their faces when they have worked towards an end result.”

I work for VIY to give someone a chance at the possibility of a future through learning a trade and I love the opportunities to help those who need a bit of encouragement.

My personal highlight so far with VIY is seeing the success on a young person’s face when they’ve achieved a task!

When you start a project and young people come to site not knowing much about trade skills, but achieve so much and get their accreditation at the end. That’s why we do this job. We’re helping them make a positive change in their lives. All young people deserve a chance, a helping hand.

We’re also helping communities. It makes me feel proud when we get great feedback from the place we’re renovating and when we get the young people asking to join us on another site.
