"I want to tell you about how much this programme developed me as a person; how much contribution it brought to my education. It wasn't complementary with school, for me it was way above school anything that I learned there. YouthBank gave me a different ‘book’ to learn from. It was one from which I took big lessons not just on teamwork, project management, fundraising and all that; but also about myself. I learned how to work efficiently with others, how to manage my resources, how to support others, how to deal with different situations and how to be who I am today. Regardless of where I go and what I do – these are the key lessons that I must have with me" Csilla Balint: YouthBank Romania

"YouthBank played a huge part in getting me to where I am today. If I started to explain all the things that I've been able to do or see because of YouthBank, you’d pretty much be receiving a few chapters of my autobiography. Without it, I’m not sure I’d be at University, nor would I have found employment so easily because of the experiences and opportunities I was afforded in my time with YouthBank" Mathew McNichol: YouthBank Ireland
