Our volunteer’s experience with us

"I have loved working with STN and being able to positively help my local community. The work STN does in offering academic and training support to those who need it most is really inspiring and I am proud to be able to help this worthy cause. Being a volunteer has enabled me to work on my IT skills, such as formatting and using Google Docs in a more detailed way."
