Matthew works on the Talent-Match Programme, which includes engaging with young people through Spark's Day Activities and encouraging and leading young people at the Enterprise Camps.
Before joining as a member of the Groundwork South Yorkshire team, Matthew volunteered with the Talent-Match Programme for over two years.
Highlight of the role: In my role, I have the opportunity to meet a variety of people from different backgrounds. Each person needs help with something in their life; being able to change their lives for the better is one of the best feelings.
Why Groundwork South Yorkshire is great: I have come full circle, from attending the Talent-Match programme as a young person myself, struggling to achieve goals to securing a paid position within Groundwork. I am in a much better place in life and I enjoy helping other young people, in similar situations.
