I have worked with LNK since September 2017 as a Youth Mentor/ Social Media Editor. I chose to work for LNK because I believed in the goals the organisation are making to ensure young people have a better career start for their future. I believe young people are the future and everyone deserves a chance to be better. As a youth mentor I support and guide young people, who have been identified as being at risk of becoming NEET (not in Education, Employment or Training). We provide the skills and knowledge they will need to do well, and support the young people into post 16 provision e.g. college, apprenticeship or employment.
My role as a Social Media Editor is to manage all of LNK digital image (Twitter, Instagram and Facebook). I create short videos and write content, updating our supports with upcoming events and statistics in our local community and developing new ideas for visual content.
