Tiffany Makes a World of Difference
One of Youthline’s very own, volunteer Tiffany Harkess is one of six recipients of the ‘Vodafone World of Difference Award.’ The scholarship pays recipients a salary for one year, enabling them to donate that time to help a youth – related cause.  

Tiffany has been a Youthline counsellor and mentor since 2006 and will use the scholarship to help the buddies team, which supports new counsellors in their work on the Youth Helpline. In 2009 this team will help to train 160 new volunteers to support young people by telephone, txt and online. She is excited at the prospect of developing and expanding Youthline’s services, “I really identify with the values of Youthline so it will be great to be able to give the organization a leg up” she said.

Her project will take place next year and will include extending and formalising the buddies training process, growing the buddies team to be sustainable in the following years, developing young leaders within the buddies team and creating a reward and recognition system for buddies and other volunteers.

Tiffany begun  volunteering as a telephone counsellor and later become a mentor and member of Youthline’s strategic review committee, “It’s amazing to see young people nurtured and succeeding in an environment like this and I encourage people to become a volunteer at Youthline because it really changed my life.”
