Being a volunteer at Element Society is so much fun! The people here are lovely and are all so passionate about what they do. I did NCS in Birmingham a few years ago and found it so rewarding that I couldn't wait to get involved with an organisation that has the same values and principles as NCS as soon as I could - volunteering has given me that chance. I'm currently helping to co-ordinate the Invata project with John, and doing a bit of young person engagement for NCS. What's great about the co-ordinating part in particular is that I have ownership of what I'm doing and have the responsibilities that go along with that - I'm not just here to make tea or coffee! I'm treated as if I was a member of staff, which makes this fantastic experience for me both personally and professionally, and I get to give back just like I wanted. Who volunteers?
