“Hello” from our student volunteer interns

Hi I’m Alice! I am joining York Cares as the new Admin and Communications intern. I am currently a third year MChem Chemistry student so I have two more years of studying before I graduate. 

Outside of studying I am the Vice Chair of Communications for my college student committee, Vanbrugh Junior College Room Committee (JCRC), and I also have some smaller roles on other student society committees. I love keeping busy so I have loved been involved with different societies and I’ve particularly enjoyed making promotional material and managing the social media pages for Vanbrugh JCRC this year. I’m excited for this internship as it will give me a chance to develop these skills further.

Throughout the year I will be working on York Cares social media platforms, blog and newsletter among other things. I am looking forward to sharing the incredible and varied work that York Cares helps to carry out through its wide range of programmes and I am excited to see what other opportunities the year brings!

Most of you will also recognise Sally who was on a Placement Year with us last year. Sally has come back to intern with us while she completes her final year of study. Sally will be looking after the Right to Read programme, carrying on the brilliant work she did on Inspiring Minds last year.
