Mae cynllun gwirfoddoli yn annog myfyrwraig i ddilyn ei breuddwydion ym myd radio

Mae myfyrwraig chweched dosbarth wedi canmol cynllun gwirfoddoli Canolfan Mileniwm Cymru am roi’r hyder iddi lansio’i sioe radio ei hun.

Dywedodd y fyfyrwraig Keisha Peets fod y rhaglen wedi darparu’r sgiliau a’r treiddgarwch iddi roedd arni eu hangen i’w galluogi i ddilyn ei huchelgais ym myd radio.

Mae’r eneth 17 mlwydd oed yn cymryd rhan yng nghynllun y Ganolfan am chwe mis, gan weithio fel tywysydd gwirfoddol.

Nod cynllun gwirfoddoli’r Ganolfan yw darparu amrywiol brosiectau ac ehangu cyrhaeddiad ei gwaith, gan hefyd ddarparu cyfleoedd i bobl yn y gymuned leol.  Mae gan ei thywyswyr gwirfoddol rôl hanfodol yn cynorthwyo staff i groesawu miliynau o ymwelwyr bob blwyddyn, ac i gyfrannu at brofiad cyffredinol y Ganolfan.

Yma, mae Keisha yn siarad am ei phrofiad yn gwirfoddoli yn y Ganolfan …

Volunteer scheme encourages student to pursue radio dreams

A sixth form student has praised the Wales Millennium Centre’s volunteering scheme for giving her the confidence to launch her own radio show.

Student Keisha Peets said the programme had provided her with the skills and insight she needed to enable her to pursue her radio ambitions.

The 17-year-old is taking part in the Centre’s scheme for six months taking on the role of volunteer usher.

The Centre’s volunteer scheme aims to deliver various projects and expand the reach of its work, while also providing opportunities to people in the local community. Its volunteer ushers play a vital role by supporting staff in welcoming millions of visitors annually, and contributing to the overall Centre experience.

Here Keisha talks about her volunteering experience at the Centre …

Student volunteers taking Centre stage

This year, during the week commencing 19 February, students will be encouraged to give a little back to the community as part of student volunteer week. To celebrate the 17th anniversary of student volunteer week, we thought we’d share a profile of one or our volunteers, to show you that volunteering is not just something you do for other’s. Lauren Thornell, a music student at Cardiff university and a regular on our volunteer scheme, took the time to speak to us about her work here.
