”Volunteering for Catalyst at Acton High School first was challenging as I had very little confidence and experience in how to mentoring young people within an education environment. The training sessions provided were direct and influential as they gave me the right tools needed for my placement. Volunteering has given me the hands on experience I needed whilst studying for my degree in criminology at University of West London”
