Callum Hurst's Work Experience with The Berry Youth Theatre

Volunteering with multiple youth groups has been one of my most useful, yet fun experiences. I was able to not just lead games, but whole sessions with the youth clubs - helping me develop skills I need for two of my future dream careers - drama teacher or actor.

Currently, I have been working towards my Gold Arts Award and this opportunity has made it possible for me to complete this qualification. If this was presented to me, I would certainly take this opportunity again, as it is a wonderful experience to teach young children about a passion we have in common in a fun way; whilst still being able to connect with them on a personal level, which created a welcoming atmosphere throughout each session.
