Beth is our Youth Work manager, who, working with a small team of volunteers and part time staff is supporting children and young people in West Kent to learn and develop through games and activities.
How long have I worked for YMCA West Kent.
I joined the team in September 2020
Sum up the work that you do at YMCA West Kent.
I create programmes and activities to support children and young people to learn and develop, teaching important lessons for life in a fun and engaging ways… so they don’t know that they are learning.
What’s the most enjoyable part of your work
Working with my team to create games and activities and supporting children and young people to have fun, socialise and reach their full potential. It is wonderful to see young people recognise their own potential.
Best advice you have ever been given
You miss 100% of the shots that you don’t take. (don’t let the fear of failure stop you from trying).

Away from work what do you enjoy doing.
I am a lover of sport, my favourite being football both playing and watching and I also love spending time with my partner and family.
