I started volunteering in August 2016.  It's something I had always considered but never saw myself doing due to lack of confidence and I never knew how or where to start. I saw volunteering at Doorway as a great path into a career in support work for young people.

I've witnessed people I know be led down a path they couldn't escape and people I care about give up. I've experienced times in my life where I lost hope, felt alone, didn't have a voice, made mistakes and been someone I didn't want to be. But there is hope, and that's why I volunteer because I want to help young people to see that their lives now don't have to be that way forever, that people do care, and change is possible.
