Why don't you try!

After volunteering for a few months at Bright Lives, I can confidently say that it has been a thoroughly rewarding experience!

Quite apart from learning new skills such as till work, improving my creativity further, and how to guide and teach a group of people in a crafts class, the boost in confidence and self esteem has been huge. I now feel better about myself, more confident in assisting people, and in standing firm on my conclusions and decisions.

While I found the till work my most relaxing job, in fact assisting during the crafts class is when I felt a realisation of fulfilment and purpose. Helping others with disabilities learn a new skill themselves, while also having fun, was full of enjoyment, was the most gratifying experience.

I can happily say that the skills, confidence and self esteem I have achieved are now being implemented in my personal life without me even realising it. I now have the determination and courage to take the next step in my life and to independence, by researching the matter of moving out of my mother's house into motion.

This has been a big, but smooth learning curve and has also been highly enjoyable. In my opinion everyone should try volunteering at least once, as you learn so many new skills, meet lots of new people, and gain plenty of confidence and experience, making it a highly rewarding period of time.
