Volunteer of the Month
Volunteer of the Month, December 2012
I've been volunteering with Team Durham, and specifically the Second Chance Project for two years. The experience has been incredibly rewarding; introducing me to people and perspectives that I would otherwise never have encountered. Seeing the participants grow in skill and confidence throughout the program made all of the time and effort invested more than worthwhile. I would encourage anybody with even a remote interest in volunteering with Team Durham to give it a go: you might be surprised by just how much you enjoy it.
Volunteer of the month, November 2012
I am a postgraduate student studying Public Policy and Health. Whilst at university, I enjoy competing in college and university sports as well as attending college social events. As a volunteer at Team Durham, I work with various groups facilitating sporting activities. I thoroughly enjoy volunteering as I enjoy helping others and firmly believe in the physical and psychological benefits that physical activity interventions can achieve. In addition, I believe the volunteering will help me gain valuable experience for my desired career path in health improvement.
