What a fantastic start to our 2018 Activity Stay!
We've been joined by 20 young people at Mill Hill School for a week jam packed with exciting activities. After getting to know each other a little, we all headed to our rooms briefly where the young people could settle in, get to know their new roommates a bit more and take a look at the Teens Unite goodie bags we prepared for them. We've already seen a few people sporting our Teens Unite tshirts and personalised water bottles!
We then made our way from the house to the hall, where we played a few games to break the ice. After a game of Bob Bob Bob, Look Down Look Up, Anyone Who and Chair Maze, our cheeks were sore from laughing so much and we came away feeling like we've known each other for years!
Then came the moment we've been waiting for all day... a delivery from Domino's Pizza! After we tucked in, we were lucky enough to be paid a visit by volunteers Kim, Beverley and Melissa who gave us all hand massages and painted our nails. We're now feeling super relaxed and ready for our Sports Day tomorrow!
Detailed below are our events for Teens, Volunteers, Fundraising and Challenges.
Volunteering with Teens Unite has changed my personality and outlook on life. When I hear all the amazing things the teens say about Teens Unite, I can tell they mean every word.
Teens Unite isn't just a charity to me, it was the beginning of restarting my life.
When Elliot started receiving the support of Teens Unite, I could see a change in him straightaway. His outlook on life was becoming positive again and I gained strength from seeing my little boy accepting what had happened and starting to move forward.
I needed help and that's where Teens Unite came in. I believe that everything happens for a reason, and the reason I met Teens Unite was to save my life.
With Teens Unite, I finally realised that I could climb out of this massive hole that I had been digging because I wasn't alone anymore.
If it wasn't for Teens Unite, I wouldn't be where I am now. They have been really supportive and given me the strength to push myself and not give up.
