I'm a passion and enthusistic part time youth worker. I want to expand my skills and knowledge to be able to make an impact on the lives of young people in my local community. I work full time in school and part time in a youth centre. I am also training to be a mentor too, by the end of the each week I've dedicated atleast 50 hours to working with young people, but to truly progress I need to become qualified.
About my project.
I'm saving every penny I can to fund my degree myself. My first year alone is £5400 and I've worked out at my current rate I'll be £1000 short by the time I am due to start in September. I'm aiming to raise atleast £1000 but more would be amazing.
Anything I raise up to £5400 will be used for my level 4 youth work qualification (equivilent to the first year of a degree) If I am lucky enouh to raise more I will donate it to the youth centre I work at, which is a charity. As I need to work full time to pay for this course I am doing it through the open university. If you want to know more about the course have a look here: http://www.open.ac.uk/courses/qualifications/t15
If you have any questions let me know. I appreciate any pledges you can give!
