Volunteer of the Month: April 2024

Volunteer of the month is when we get to shout about our amazing volunteers and the, quite literally, life changing work they do to help Fresh Futures run smoothly and effectively.

This month we would like to say a big THANK YOU to Sudeep who has been volunteering at the charity since February 2024.

We caught up with Sudeep to hear about his Fresh Futures Volunteering journey so far…

How long have you been volunteering for the charity? 2 months.

Tell us a bit about yourself: I am Sudeep Varghese John and I enjoy working with young people & children. I am passionate about working as a Health Safety Environment, Food Safety Supervisor and Trainer. 

Tell us about your volunteering role: I supervise children, give information about day-to-day activities to parents and serve food from the kitchen during the Fresh Futures Stay & Play Warm Spaces sessions.

Tell us about a typical day in your role:  I come to Brian Jackson House in the morning take on the daily activities to prepare for the Stay and Play sessions. When parents arrive with their children I register their names and provide them with the relevant information about the session. I involve them in the activities and provide refreshments.

What made you want to start volunteering with Fresh Futures? I wanted to work as a volunteer to gain experience of working with children for future employment in schools and colleges. I consider this is a great opportunity.

And finally, what advice would you give to people considering volunteering with Fresh Futures? It would be a great opportunity for anyone who is interested in working with children and young adults. Fresh futures has a very supportive management team and volunteering could help to attain a job in this field.
