MENU Flying Futures

I am a graduate of York St John University (YSJ)with a BA (Hons) in Sport, Society and Development. I joined Flying Futures back in 2013 initially as a volunteer alongside studying my undergraduate degree. It was at this point which ignited my passion for working with young people and seeing the benefit and opportunity young people have in taking part in NCS. During my final year at YSJ University I juggled studying my undergraduate degree and submitting my dissertation whilst working part time with Flying Futures which I took the lead on delivering the programme across North Yorkshire. In doing this, I was seconded to the regional recruitment team in the Yorkshire and Humber region, which allowed me to work closely with schools across the county to engage and build relationships and promote NCS to all students. The following year saw me as the lead engagement officer for the North Yorkshire region full time, planning and developing the programme and engaging signed up young people from entry to the programme, exit, and extension onto our Flying Futures graduate programme. As Flying Futures has grown hugely since I joined in 2013, September 2015 saw me promoted to Citizenship Coordinator. It was my responsibility to ensure successful recruitment, engagement and development of young people and the NCS programme. Working closely with all team members to ensure a fantastic customer experience by our young people taking part in NCS. My role now as Head of Programmes allows me to develop and maintain delivery of our NCS programme to a very high standard. It is my objective to ensure that Flying Futures’ programme is offering the most it can to our young people in developing skills, qualifications and experiences, and to be a stand out local delivery partner across the country. By linking in with our ambassador programme, it allows graduates to remain involved through all phases to create a real youth ethos to our work. My role sees me connect with local community organisations and charities, signed up young people including grads and other key stakeholders. By working closely with the engagement and support team we aim to provide a smooth, supportive and life changing experience I am looking forward to continuing the work that we do in making a difference in the communities and to the people we deliver to, and continuing to grow Flying Futures, and change the lives of young people
