I hopped on a train from Aberdeen to Edinburgh for the session last Saturday. I’m so happy I made the effort to go – the training made the prospect of doing school talks and Global Citizenship sessions much less daunting, it was lovely to see some familiar faces from Coll and I never tire of hearing stories from other Returned Volunteers.
In particular I found the Global Citizenship content really helpful and interesting and it was amazing to see how simple it can be to run a really effective session. When I was in Namibia I loved celebrating international days with my students, but the thought of running sessions for children in Britain somehow seemed much more intimidating. But the information from the Project Trust Refreshed sessions cleared my mind from uncertainties, expanded on the training we received on Debriefing and now I can’t wait to get started.
