Guardian Spotlight: Jonas and Alex

This month we met Alex and Jonas, two of our amazing guardians who volunteer at Body and Soul, a charity for young people and families living with and affected by HIV.

Jonas and Alex assist and deliver music workshops to empower young people to create their own pieces of music or spoken word.

These four week workshops aim to record and produce finished pieces that young people have made and feel proud of.  Jonas, who assists as a sound engineer, told us a bit more about his experience:

 “Some of the young people that come to these workshops have so much to deal with outside of Body and Soul, and struggle through many different experiences.

“Volunteering with these groups is so rewarding because as soon as they get here, they can relax and do what any other kid or young person would want to do- and it’s great to see you’ve helped work towards that”

Jonas also recently assisted the Body and Soul team in sound editing for a short movie about living with disabilities.

Get involved

Volunteers are at the forefront of Body & Soul, and they are always keen to hear from people who are willing to give their time to help support people living with HIV.
