Danii's Story

"I was just one of those kids that was always getting into trouble. I didn't have a plan; I didn't know what I wanted to do. Groundwork asked me to take part in a volunteering event and at first I was like no chance, why should I, but they asked me again and as soon as I started I realised I can help people."

"The encouragement and confidence that I got from Groundwork, made me realise what I want to do. Knowing what you want to do makes you focused, it makes you want to go out and improve. I've now got something to look forward to."

Danii, 19,  is now a regular volunteer at her local youth group, helping to run activities, mentor other young people and act as a youth ambassador - representing her peers at meetings and encouraging other young people to get involved in community projects. The experience is helping her to meet her ambition of a career in sports coaching.

Danii is just one of thousands of young people we help to reach their potential every year.
