Meet Jackie our Trafford Mentor Co-ordinator
Meet Jackie our (not so new) Trafford Mentor Co-ordinator....
My name is Jackie McNeish I am a qualified youth and Community Worker with a Masters degree in Education. I have been in post since the 11th June. I joined this team as I loved the concept of helping young people progress in life and to also give the opportunity for people to give back to their local communities. I am qualified in Personal Training and Nutrition, and have a certificate in Person Centred Counselling. In my spare time I love to do weight training and teach others to do the same. I set up community groups and recently set up a group for women who have been affected by Domestic Abuse. The group is called Women of Worth. I also run an online business around health beauty diet and well being, and my greatest past time is to travel.
My vast experience of youth and community work in a variety of settings will really help me in this role. I have been very busy recruiting mentors for Trafford as well as building meaningful relationships with young people. I love that no two days are the same, and the fact that I could have my week planned and it could all change in a moment. I look forward to sharing our progress with you and encourage you if you have considered becoming a mentor then do not hesitate its so rewarding.
