Arion is 25 and lives in Hackney. In October 2012 he started volunteering with London Youth as part of the Talent Match Youth Board. Through reflecting on his own experiences during a two-day residential Arion, together with other youth board volunteers, developed the Talent Match Five Pillars and Talent Match Values and have continued to volunteer with London Youth to develop and lead the programme.

To date Arion has volunteered over 100 hours as part of the Talent Match Youth Board and continues to add a huge amount of value as theprogramme continues to evolve.

Arion said “Volunteering with London Youth has helped with my confidence in speaking in front of large numbers of people, I have really enjoyed meeting new people from all over the country.

One of the best parts about my volunteer role is building a bond and working with the youth board volunteers at our residentials.”
