Hi, I’m April and I am a Youth and Community worker here at URPotential. I started URPotential as a volunteer and began by running the Art Group for young people and got involved in other projects that developed a wide range of skills and knowledge for me to progress further.
I have a PTLLS qualification, a degree in Textile Crafts and I am a qualified JNC Youth and Community Worker. I have been fortunate to access other training such as ASSIST, Mental Health First Aid, NCS Online Training, Mindful manager and SEND safeguarding.
Throughout my time at URPotential I have been involved in different projects, activities and events. I have developed and delivered Move into volunteering, Peer Mentoring, Peer Support, Customer services and Interview Skills Training for young people.
I am the Participation and Engagement worker, this includes supporting Blackpool Youth Council, Peer Mentors as well as developing and supporting social action projects across Blackpool. Additionally, I am manager in training and I am passionate about the growth of the company.
