Having introduced and developed our preschool sessions over a 4 year period, I was delighted to be offered the role of Youth Development & Programme Manager here at Tollcross YMCA.
The pandemic gave me an insight into the extensive role our YMCA plays in the local community and I was amazed at how the Board and our previous manager adapted to the lockdown measures whilst, desperately, trying to meet the needs of our community, at a time when there was nothing and no-one else for some of our most vulnerable community members. I knew then Tollcross YMCA was for me.
I have two young children, who don’t know life without the YMCA, be it toddlers or Juniors- they love their “YM”.
I am passionate about supporting and empowering young people, as well as establishing ways to service the wider community and continue to feel privileged to work alongside such a dedicated team of staff, volunteers and Board members.
