“The ambassador program has given me a great boost in confidence because I’ve learned how to communicate in the work place and as part of a team. I’ve used these transferable skills which have enabled me to find employment and study at college in an older peer group. I have noticed a great change in my maturity and I am also adaptable to different situations. I have also become more responsible.” Ambassador (Stirling Sharks)
