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. I have a PTLLS qualification, a degree in Textile Crafts and I am a qualified JNC Youth and Community Worker.
I am the Participation and Engagement worker, this includes supporting Blackpool Youth Voice, Peer Mentors and developing and supporting social action projects across Blackpool.
Throughout my time at URPotential I have been involved in different projects, activities and events. I have delivered Move into volunteering and Peer Mentoring Training. Developed and delivering adult training and a Peer Support programme.
