Max Maclean

Max became an #IWill Ambassador in 2017. Read his social action journey:

 

“I first started social action by volunteering with Active Schools coaching young people from primary ages up to high school. This program was provided through High life Highland, a Scottish charity that develops and promotes opportunities in culture, learning, sport, leisure, health and wellbeing across the Highlands.

I first decided to get involved in social action simply because I felt it would help my CV, and I wanted to explore activities that would help me get a job down the line. However now I enjoy it for the sake of volunteering, and for the young people I work with, and want to carry it on!

I got more involved with the leadership program, and my confidence has been boosted a lot since I got involved in volunteering at these clubs, where I run football, basketball, dodgeball, yoga, and a multi skills club as well as shinty and a social group.

The clubs wouldn’t run without the help of the volunteers, or the contributions I make, so it feels good to know that I’m making a difference, and helping young people in the area stay active.”
