Before beginning my journey with Futureversity as a peer motivator, I was known as the quiet and reserved one amongst my friends, but now I am the confident and headstrong one. Being a peer motivator has given me confidence and a voice that I didn’t know I had, as well as a wide skill set that will benefit my future career massively. The extent of training provided and experienced people around me gave me guidance and support throughout my journey as a peer motivator.
The main aim of Futureversity is to keep young people within the Royal Borough of Greenwich active and occupied through the summer in a way that will benefit them, because of this, great value will be placed on your position as a peer motivator. As you motivate the young people of Greenwich and ensure they have a fantastic summer experience you will feel proud to have taken part in a great social action programme. As well benefiting the young people, you as a peer motivator will benefit massively from this role as you gain the chance to expand your network and make friends for life, which in turn will open new doors for you. As mentioned before, you will develop a wide range of skills such as; becoming a natural leader, strong communication skills and great confidence, which all look amazing on your CV!
What initially will be a group of strangers coming together, will develop and flourish into a tight-knit family at the end.
