THE Hub in Lyme Regis has welcomed Lydia Glover as a volunteer at its Wednesday and Friday youth club sessions.
Lydia is a second year student at The University Centre Somerset, based in Taunton. She is studying Health and Social Care with the intentions of becoming a primary school teacher and, throughout this current year, she is studying the second year of her degree as well as a diploma in children’s residential care.
Lydia was advised to go on placement whilst completing her diploma and she chose The Hub youth club for as it would provide a stepping stone to her teaching career goal.
Lydia said: “I’m really happy that I can do my placement at The Hub. I have been going to the youth club as a volunteer for a few weeks and I really enjoy seeing the children and young adults use the centre as a place to relax and enjoy activities that would be difficult to do at home.
“I find talking to the children very easy and they have made me feel very welcome, I honestly believe these children and young adults are an asset to our community.”
The Hub youth club is open on Wednesdays from 6.30 for ages 8-14 years and from 7pm on Fridays for senior youth club.
