Introducing Jess Butler! She is passionate, full of energy and always hungry and that’s why we love her!
We ask Jess about what it’s like to work at CYZ…
I have worked at Carlisle Youth Zone since we opened in 2011 and have loved every minute of it.
I began as a part time youth worker in Junior Club and throughout the years I have held several different roles, whilst always remaining within Juniors. I am now the Team Leader for the club as well as coordinating our awesome Holiday Club.
I love the variety of the work that we do and of the people that we see; no two days are ever the same and there is definitely no opportunity to be bored. The absolute best bit has got to be the young people though. Seeing a young person go through Junior Club and into Seniors and then come to volunteer their time is so rewarding.
…and about her hobbies and childhood…
I’m a hobby-less Mummy with my hands full…unless trying to get more sleep can be classed as a hobby?! I do like to read when I get the chance but it’s rarely now.
Playing ( & smashing) Alex Kidd on my Sega Master System and playing out with my friends until it got dark is my best childhood memory
