Money, Meanings and Admin
Treasurer Zita distills the meaning of KEEN as well as offering an insight into her experiences.
In order to volunteer, we need to have a valid DBS check. As I am an international student the administration time is longer than usual and it takes me 8 weeks to get it done.
However, I can promise you that the wait is worthwhile and don’t let that put you off. Since then, I have gone to the KEEN sessions every week and I took a step further to become a treasurer in this year’s committee.
This involved managing KEEN’s finances in coordination with our student union and grant application. I also work closely with our fundraising officer, Beth to provide more resources for the children.
It’s almost a year since I joined KEEN, if you ask me now
I could tell you that KEEN actually means
having fun with the kids!
