starting a new volunteer position on tuesday

i am so excited. this week, on tuesday, i am starting a new volunteer job. i will be working with an organisation called cork city partnership. this organisation works with vulnerable and disadvantaged people. i will be working as an admin staff. doing office work. writing emails, answering the phone, writing letters etc. i’ve been waiting now for a while for this. my guarda vetting is not through yet but the head of staff said i could start anyway, because it is her fault that my clearance hasnt been dealt with yet. she hasnt sent it off yet because of being on annual leave, holidays etc. so i’ll be starting on tuesday afternoon. tuesday will be hella busy for me. in the morning i’ll have my pa coming, then i go to the basement club at 11 to volunteer, and then after that i go straight to the new place. not sure how many hours i am doing probably 3 of 4 though. cant wait to start. i’m really excited to get going. it will be amazing to connect with new people and make new friends and have new opportunities to get more resources and hear about new things happening in my local area. the college course i applied to, the substance use and misuse in youth and community work, is run by the cork city partnership, if i get it, i pay 125 euro, but really it should be costing 600 euro, but the partnership is subsidising it for applicants. they also run outreach groups and they have said if i want to that i can participate in some of these. one group i know i’d like to participate in is their craft group. i already talked to the lady in charge of it and it sounds like something i’d very much enjoy doing. so yeah lots of new things on the horrizon.
