Volunteering @ Yes – Koffi

We routinely support a range of people in volunteering and placement opportunities.  Whether people want to develop work skills and confidence or simply give something back to the local community.

Koffi Avokandoto joined the team for 13 weeks until March 28th mainly to improve his English in a rewarding setting.

‘…meeting the staff team on the first day I knew it would be great to be around these people and I learned a lot…’”
