Throughout my placement, I came to realise that interns at TESYouth are treated differently to those elsewhere. Instead of being given menial tasks with limited responsibility, I was made to feel important to the organisation, being given real assignments related to my personal skills.
My time with TESYouth turned out to be one of the most important experiences of my life, kick-starting both my personal and professional development. Its ended up securing me a real job within TESYouth as well as assisting me in starting up my own successful business.
I certainly wouldn’t hesitate to recommend TESYouth to any young person, regardless of their situation.
With the placement comes experience, confidence, and perhaps most importantly, the understanding that there is light at the end of the unemployment tunnel.
