Hannah’s story: Inspiring a future youth worker

I came out of high school feeling deflated and believing I had failed my GCSEs. I had a lot going on and at a low-point in my life, I came to Inspire to take my mind off things.

I’ve come very far in the year I’ve been coming to Inspire, I’ve made a lot of friends and the youth workers are really determined for me to do my best. The Youth Zone has helped me get back into education, which I am very thankful for. The youth workers sat with me and helped with my application.

I’m now studying and developing my skills in music. The Youth Zone has also helped me increase my mental health with 1:1 support and mentoring. They have always been there for me, and I’m in a better position now than when I was at the start. I’m looking forward optimistically.

Going to the Youth Zone has helped shape a lot of the morals and my plans for the future to become a better person. I think the reason a lot of people don’t come to Youth Zones in general is because there’s a lot of negative stigmas. People don’t fully understand what it is and what it’s for. You need to get engaged and attend to see the sort of things you can do, and you might learn a lot about yourself in the process.

“Hannah’s mental health has improved so much over the past year. I think Inspire has been an incredible benefit to her, she says herself that she would not be here if it wasn’t for Inspire. I think that’s credit to the work that we do but also her determination and dedication to improve. She has mentoring and 1:1 support which has helped her think about her future” Gabbi, Recreational Lead.

When I first started coming I had no goals for the future with no idea what to do with my life. Attending the Youth Zone has made me realise that I would like to become a youth worker. I’d like to help people in the same way I’ve been helped.
