Volunteers make a valuable contribution in a range of areas within the Glebe Youth Service community.
Ellie contacted GYS via our website in September 2014, looking for volunteering opportunities. She was completing her final year of Science at University, and was keen to get involved in her local community. After finishing her exams, Ellie volunteered with GYS by joining staff at the Community Yarn Up event in February 2015. Since then, Ellie has become an important part of the Homework Help program (Mondays at GYS, and Wednesdays at Balmain High School). Ellie has attended every day of these programs in term 1, 2015. Her commitment has been a huge support in rolling out these new programs, and she has stuck with the programs when some days have not had participants at all, and some days have had only two workers helping 10 students with their homework at once. Ellie has developed great rapport with the students at Homework Help, and has not been fazed by any challenging behavior. It’s champions like Ellie who help us to do so much, and we are very glad to have her involved in our programs.
