Rachel is experienced in working with groups of young people to develop their leadership skills and facilitate them to plan and deliver their own events. She loves working with young people on projects that offer real meaningful opportunities for them to learn and share their skills and have their voices heard. It is important for young people having the power to make decision and be involved in the whole process from deciding on an events theme to budget to risk assessments.
