Volunteer Training

11 Volunteers from 3 affiliated youth clubs and the EBGC VTEAM travelled down to our Maes Y Lade Centre for a few days of training and adventure. The volunteers were offered the opportunity to take part in the training to improve their skills and for more understanding about their role as a volunteer at their clubs and with the VTEAM.

On top of getting involved with all of the activities, the Volunteers completed the ASDAN Leadership and Volunteering Short Course Awards. The volunteers also got the opportunity to take part in the first pilot held in the UK for the Global Citizenship Education Programme which has been facilitated by YMCA George Williams College and EBGC.

Some of the activities included: Gorge Walking, Mountain Hiking, Camp Fire & Laser Tag.


A BIG well done to all who took part
