LEARNING SKILLS FOR A BETTER FUTURE
THE Learning Ground in Bidwill relies on generous volunteers giving their time to help young people to develop the communication skills, confidence and discipline to enjoy their education and pursue their vocation.
Volunteers Mischelle Jackson, Michael Smith and Cassandra Jackson (with Jackson and Kaleb, 12, Te-Arani, 11, and Hope, 11) came to the centre for different reasons, but have found the chance to help young people irresistible since joining.
Ms Jackson came when her son did work placement there. “I came to fill in after he left and I’ve stayed for four years,” she said. Mr Smith said volunteering and hearing about the children’s stories had helped him grow and broaden his own horizons.
