Acknowledgements

This page is to all of our volunteers, to show our gratitude and to get a bit of recognition for yourself. We are truly grateful for all your help that you give, the centre wouldn\’t be able to function without you.

It has been over two years since my last job, I was taking care of my two daughters. The time came for me to go back to work and I was nervous to do so. Then I decided to join Dallow Learning Community Centre and started volunteering as an Administration Assistant. I was performing general administrative and financial duties in the day to day running of the organisation. I really enjoyed working in such a supportive and friendly environment. I updated my working skills onto my CV which I needed for a future job and gained confidence in myself to go for interviews and to get a job that I would enjoy.
I believe that the skills and experience gained from volunteering at the centre helped me in my recent interview at Relic Homes in St Albans and I was successful enough to be given the chance for part time employment within the organisation.
So I want to say thank you to all the staff at Dallow Learning Community Centre for a brilliant experience.

I have been volunteering at the centre as an admin assistant. As part of my role I was responsible for undertaking various duties such as filing, photocopying, answering the telephone and updating the database. I enjoy interacting with the daily users and the staff are very helpful and supportive. Through volunteering I have widened my business skills and gained confidence in myself preparing me for future business roles.

During my time at the centre I have gained valuable experience within the field of web development. My time at the centre has been a very enjoyable one, mainly due to the friendly and supportive staff. I think that this experience has had a beneficial impact on my career and also has helped me build my confidence. I would personally like to thank all the staff at the DLCC for giving me this opportunity and for their general kindness.
