YWCA-Volunteering Matters(Y-VM) volunteering training

An intensely frozen day, 27th Dec. Seoul YWCA  conducted a training session for Y-VM volunteers. Six out of eight had attended, and they learned about intellectual developmental disabilities. They would be a volunteer for various people who has disabilities and help their life skill for them to be included within the community in United Kingdom.
 
 
 









Each of them will be sent the the UK one by one in a different project, but most of them will face new environment in a foreign country and someone who has diverse difficulties. In order to prepare for the project Y-VM volunteers had this chance to get a preliminary training. In the first session, they listened to a lecture regarding  intellectual developmental disabilities and met with 17-year-old intellectual disability students to get to know each other.
 
The third session was to self- experience being a handicapped person. Each of us got a test paper looked like above. If you reflect the paper to a mirror, it's normal. So we had to solve the problems by looking at the mirror in hand-writing. They felt to be a fool because it was very difficult to focus on and made a correct answer. The instructor told us it could be a feeling intellectually disabled people would always feel the same way.
 
 
 
Seoul YWCA always hope the volunteers overcome any hardship faced in the UK and experience many things to broaden their eyes. We hope Y-VM good luck!
