Volunteer profile: John

Posted on: 8th August 2017

John has been part of the Body & Soul volunteering team for over two years now. He uses his musical skills and naturally empathetic approach to encourage our teen members to explore their creative side through song. Every month John and the rest of the Project Jam team produce a song so there must be an album on the way soon! Here is what John had to say about his experience volunteering at Body & Soul.


I’ve been volunteering at Body & Soul for two and a half years. I’m a musician, so I thought it might be fun to share my musical skills with the teens, and it really has been! It’s amazing to see how quickly we can write a really great song with their lyrics and inspired musical ideas. We have a lot of talented teens.


I’ve also had the opportunity as a volunteer to train in Dialectical Behaviour Therapy: I received training and support for the work I do with the Beyond Boundaries programme, which allows us to support our members all over the country.

We have a strong community of staff and volunteers – we work hard to improve our members’ lives, and we also have a lot of fun together!


We’re always looking for volunteers at Body & Soul, so if you’re interested in joining our community, check out the opportunities we have available here.
