My name is Tanya Smyth I currently volunteer as a youth worker for Lagmore Youth Project. I work with the intermediate groups which is an excellent age to see young people transition from primary to secondary education and to steer youth work towards a play-formal setting. It’s amazing to see the young people from Lagmore enjoying the centre and its fantastic to give back to the community. I got Interested in Lagmore Youth Project as I felt this part of the Colin area lacked resources and with its ever growing population especially the youth in lagmore, investment needed to happen.
I became a volunteer with Lagmore Youth Project after seeing all the wonderful work they do for the local community on social media. Whilst I haven’t been involved in much so far, the team have welcomed me with open arms and I hope to be in a position to volunteer more over the next few months, starting with detached outreach work on weekend evenings which I’m very much looking forward to. When I’m not busy working the 9-5 in data analytics, I love to spend time with my daughter, love to train (calisthenics, gymnastics and pole dancing) and every so often go jump in the sea to wake myself up a bit! As a single mother from a young age, and overcoming all the challenges that that brings, I have a genuine interest in improving the lives of others in whatever small ways I can, and in empowering them to do the same for themselves.
My name is Mags McDonald and I got involved with Lagmore Youth because I wanted to give something back to the to the Colin Community, the area where I grew up. I volunteer with the Seniors Program and find it very rewarding as our young people really are brilliant and a credit to their families.
