Hi I’m Lesley and I am the Youth Outreach Officer for canal college in West Dunbartonshire, based at Bowling Basin.
I support young people through our 14 week programme where they learn new skills and gain qualifications.
Before canal college I was a youth worker for 9 years. This is where I learned the skills to motivate and inspire young people to meet their full potential. The most exciting thing for me is to watch a group of young people start as individuals and over time develop into a working team, learning social and academic skills and building their confidence and moving on to a positive outcome.
If you would like to know more about canal college in West Dunbartonshire, refer a young person or join in yourself then please get in touch!
