Club - Mossley CRT 

Q: What level are you currently at on the Cycling Award for Young Volunteers Programme?

A: The level I am currently at is the gold and I am working towards completing the platinum award.

Q: What do you enjoy most about volunteering?

A:  The thing I enjoy the most about the volunteering is when you can tell that you have helped someone, for example one of the sessions I helped assist, a little girl was struggling doing scooting so I helped her and she managed to do it, and at the end she came up to me and said thank you. That feeling has to be one of the best within volunteering.

Q:  How do you think being a volunteer has helped you? 

A: The volunteering has given me a new confidence within myself and it has taught me how to engage with people of different ages, abilities and backgrounds.

Q: Is there anything you would change about your volunteering experience?

A: There is only one thing I would change but it can’t really be changed is that of some people’s views on the young volunteers, some people think because we're not adults we don’t know what we are doing.

Q: Where would you like your volunteering to take you in the future?

A: I would like to progress more into volunteering and travel around the world and carry it on.
