Interned with us over Summer 2017

I began volunteering for The Yellow Submarine in 2017 as part of their summer intern program, and it was honestly one of the best decisions I’ve made to date.

My first day just so happened to be the day we headed off to Paris for one of their many residential trips, so I began my shift by lugging my suitcase into the back of the minibus and heading off to France for a week. I was honestly filled with so many emotions – would I like this? Had I made the right decision? Would the kids like me? Well, it’s safe to say that the answer to all of my questions was – yes!

Throughout my time at The Yellow Submarine, I’ve been greeted with nothing but love and support, from staff, adults and young people alike. Every day is a new adventure, and watching the people we support to blossom into fulfilled individuals is one of the most gratifying feelings you can get.

If you can, I would strongly suggest you go in and give it a try. You have nothing to lose, and so much to gain
