Brearley is a second-year English and History student. As one of the incumbent YUSU Volunteering Officers, Brearley is confident that her extensive experience and her “hands on approach” in volunteering recommend her to run on her own this year.
Brearley’s experience in volunteering have included working with adults with learning difficulties as part of a buddy system project in the York area, and participating in both the Kids’ Club and Kids’ Camp programs. She has also been involved in Nouse and is currently Secretary for the University of York Aerobics Society.
Brearley would put in place more structures for fundraising and sponsorship and help encourage more independent fundraising. She would like to expand Volunteering Week and create more interaction between Colleges and volunteering.
