“Youth Advocate Volunteer”

So, today I started work in the Christian Aid Glasgow office! Not too much going on today to be honest, lots of orientation and introductions and reading the 20-odd emails already in my inbox. It feels great to be starting out, there have been a lot of mental shifts in the past week or so, actually getting my head around this whole ‘real job’ thing. My official title, as I discovered today, is “Youth Advocate Volunteer”, which pretty much means my remit is to enthuse & support the 16-25 age range to get involved in campaigning on issues of poverty & justice. Pretty cool, eh? I’m really excited about this opportunity to do something I love, and be supporting others to get involved in it too.
