Graduate, Danielle Jeffery, joins Presbyterian Support as a youth coach after impressing the Enliven team on her placement.
As part of Danielle’s social work degree, she completed the placement in November. Once she graduated, Presbyterian Support wasted no time inviting her to return in the Youth Service role.
Danielle experienced our Enliven day programmes, and thoroughly enjoyed the many connections she made with our older clients. She says that her interactions were both “Fun and rewarding”.
She had the opportunity to review cases and files and assist with planning the programmes. Her confidence grew as she learnt de-escalation techniques, dealing with conflict, and running group activities. Danielle said, “It was exciting using my training in the real world with Enliven’s client-led and strengths-based model.”
A highlight for Danielle was the cultural accreditation programme she completed in her last week, she said, “It was a really awesome way to bond with my team. Kim and Vicki were incredibly inclusive and supportive in facilitating my learning about something I was passionate about.”
