New intern joins The Y

Hello, I am Vikesh, a De Montfort University graduate. I have been fortunate to join The Y Fundraising and Marketing team as part of a 6-week internship through DMU Graduate Champions and I am very excited to be here. I will get involved with many aspects of marketing during my time at the youth homelessness charity. Some of my work will include; organising the Cirque du Y fundraising event, managing social media channels and creating content for the website. I have also been helping The Y to prepare the launch of the “Remember A Charity” week campaign.

It is great to gain extra marketing experience in a new sector and enhance my CV. I very grateful to The Y and DMU for the opportunity to professionally develop. I hope to share some fundraising ideas to support the charity and learn more about the services The Y offers to support young homeless people.
