Volunteering is a good start to help to find full time employment. Working in the drop-in service at VAL, Mitzu has been able to help many other people like herself to choose volunteering opportunities. She feels that she has been able to show how volunteering has benefited her and the impact it has made on her life.
In March 2019, Mitzu joined VAL’s Front of House team as a Conferencing & Facilities Coordinator and she credits her volunteering experience for helping her to find work. Since joining VAL, she is thoroughly enjoying working here and in time she would like to continue to volunteer to help others.
I would like to continue to learn how to speak English better. My goal is to speak better than anyone here. I would like to continue with my career and keep helping people to change their lives”
Mitzu is currently working towards gaining a certificate in a Level 3 qualification in English. She hopes to be able to complete this soon. With the help of liaising and speaking to customers and people in the building, she strongly believes that this will help her towards succeeding in her goal.
