Young people talking

Are you working with a young person with vision impairment who could be a great role model for others? RNIB Cymru is recruiting a young person’s champion to speak to groups of children and young people with vision impairment in Wales. 

 
By sharing their positive experiences and answering questions, the aim is for the young person’s champion to inspire other young people with vision impairment to be ambitious and feel empowered to achieve their goals in life.  
 
This is a great opportunity for a friendly, confident young person to give something back and really make a difference, while gaining valuable experience of working with young people. 
 
The role will involve visiting schools, colleges and other venues across Wales discussing experiences of sight loss, as well as acting as an ambassador for RNIB Cymru. 
 
Volunteers must be aged 18-25 to apply and be happy to share their experience of studying at college, university life, volunteering or the world of work. Full support and expenses will be provided. 
 
If you know someone who would be interested in this role, why not share this article with them?
