Volunteer Profile: Meet Charlotte Froud

Charlotte Froud recently became a Success4All volunteer. She was inspired by the emphasis Success4All had on helping young people gain confidence and combating educational inequality.  Photograph provided by Charlotte.

Over the next few days, we’ll be introducing you to some of our incredible volunteers as part of our #VolunteersWeek2021.

We’ve already introduced you to Laura Rosa Uliana, a Newcastle University student who is passionate about helping and supporting children and young people.

It’s not time for you to 17-year-old Charlotte Froud.

Charlotte is currently studying Chemistry, Maths and Biology A-Levels at Ardingly College.

What do you enjoy doing in your spare time?

I love painting, running, spending time with friends and walking my dog.

How did you become a volunteer with Success4All?

I found S4A online and felt inspired by their emphasis on helping young people gain confidence. Alongside this, I was aware of the impact of lockdown on access to education.

Why did you become a volunteer?

I had been tutoring younger years in my school and had found the ability to connect with, support and share a passion for learning with younger students hugely rewarding.

What’s your favourite part about being a volunteer?

My favourite part about being a volunteer is seeing the enthusiasm of my two lovely tutees for what we do in sessions. The ability to support them and see them grow in confidence.

Being part of the Success4All community gives me the sense that I am part of something bigger than myself and making a difference to somebody, no matter how small.

Why should other people give volunteering a go?

It is an amazing and rewarding experience, getting to know and being able to support tutees! I would hugely recommend it! You will not only enjoy being able to share your passion for subjects and learning but also gain confidence and learn how to communicate with and engage younger students.
