Celebrating Our Volunteers
At YFN, everything we do comes down to the our dedicated volunteers. We are taking some time out to get to know them a bit more and thank them for all their hard work.
Today’s Volunteer is Charlotte Milner-Barry. Charlotte has been a long standing member of the YFN volunteer committee, we love the energy and commitment she brings to the events! We asked Charlotte what it’s like to volunteer with YFN, this is what she had to say:
“Volunteering at YFN is challenging and is always pushing my boundaries! It’s pretty easy to keep reading the same links, tweets and posts and see my own opinions reflected back at me. But YFN is different. It brings together a diverse network of people to hear from, discuss and ultimately tackle the root causes of huge social issues rather than just the symptoms.
Volunteering isn’t always glamourous but how many people can say in one night they’ve learnt about women’s inequality in Bangladesh, disability rights in Bristol and how gang crime can be tackled through nail bars?”
