Staff Profile: Lisa-Marie Lees – Student placement

I am Lisa-Marie Lees and I am currently on placement at Community Links Scotland (CLS). I am studying a BA in Community Development at Glasgow University.

I have previously volunteered with Community Links sister organisation Streetlinks. I was involved with one day events, administration work and some street consultations. At present I am offering support to the Ten2Ten Youth Group who meets regularly at Community Links. This group recently participated in French Exchange Programme which involved a group of ten young people from West Dunbartonshire being paired up with ten young people from Beauvoisin in France. The group are currently trying to raise funds for a return visit in 2013 and my role will be to support them with this.

I am looking forward to being more involved with Community Links Scotland, especially being able to go out and work in the community and being able to engage with the community and identify issues which are important to them. I hope to be able to offer support to existing members of staff through carrying out project specific research and in turn learn as much as I can from their vast experience.

I hope to be able gain more working knowledge and be able to develop any new and existing skills which will enable me to become a successful community development worker in the future.
