I strongly believe in StreetDoctors’ value that young people are part of the solution to ending youth violence. Having volunteered since 2011, I regularly witness the capacity young people have to learn about, and indeed, act to assist in a medical emergency. Hearing young people say things like, “I would help. Even if it was a homeless person. They’re human and all human life is worth saving” is just one of the many reasons I remain involved in the charity. It will inspire me in my role as I look to increase and strengthen young people’s and volunteers’ involvement with StreetDoctors.
