Congratulations Emma!

Everyone at YSS would like to say well done to Herefordshire volunteer Mentor and Appropriate Adult Emma Cole, on achieving a First in your BA Honours Degree in Sociology.


Emma told us :  “At university,  a dissertation topic on the rehabilitation of offenders seemed appropriate as I had been an active volunteer at YSS for two years and thoroughly enjoyed supporting people with their rehabilitation process. I interviewed two members of YSS staff and a volunteer .I was also able to use my own experiences of volunteering with YSS . My findings “ indicated that YSS offers a range of support programs for offenders such as mentoring, Appropriate Adults and Employment Support workshops.  The success of these projects are visible through repeat funding and client feedback.  However, the extent to which these organisations can fully rehabilitate offenders can be affected by factors such as funding, time restraints and engagement rates”.


Congratulations Emma!


This shows how volunteering can benefit all  – if you are inspired then why not apply to become a volunteer.
