As an intern at Acknowledging Youths, I had the privilege of working alongside the CEO, in both Victoria and Tower Hamlets. I appreciate all the support that the team offered throughout the internship. Having started as a volunteer working externally, I soon felt very settled and resultantly, invited to work internally. My time spent there was invaluable and I was provided the opportunity to develop communication and computer skills. I got involved in tasks such as creating new databases to store candidate’s details, contacting companies, working with volunteers on numerous projects and visiting job centres. I always found helping out disadvantaged people a good cause and the chance to experience this in a company environment was incredible. I will remember the good work I did here for a long time.
