What is crowdfunding?

Crowdfunding is a new type of fundraising where you can raise funds for your own personal cause, even if you're not a registered charity.

The page owner is responsible for the distribution of funds raised.


On September 16th, I begin my ‘Experience’ gap year with XLP. I'll be volunteering with London’s churches, communities & secondary schools. I'll also be involved in an overseas mission trip. I'll be training & working with XLP from September to July.
For approx. 15 hrs per week, I'll be doing youth & community work. I'll be placed in a Borough Team at the start of the year and will work with this team for the whole year. I'll be involved with things such as running lunchtime & after-school clubs; teaching RE & PSHE lessons, & delivering assemblies; supporting young people one-to-one with reading & homework; & working on estates on the XL-R8 double decker bus.
For approx. 12 hrs per week, I'll work with my placement church. I’ll be involved in serving the youth/children’s work; helping run mid-week groups; & helping run outreach work in the community (e.g. detatched youth work, sports clubs, home visiting, mentoring).
For approx. 6 hrs per week, I'll be training in Youth work & Theology. I'll also be part of a 10 day mission trip to either Ghana or Romania.
In Ghana we'll work with the Ashanti-Akim Community Organisation ( During this trip, I'll work in schools & villages, including a secondary school in Dampong which XLP set up in association with AACO.
In Romania, we'll work with the Casa Harului (‘House of Grace’) project who provide training & family breaks for those with disabilities. We visit schools to provide education on life issues & run sessions for disabled children & their carers.
I'd really appreciate any funding I could get towards this year, as the more I can raise, the more I can invest into building up my own, and other people’s, future(s).
My ambitions for the near future are to become a youth worker. Youth workers can have an incredible impact on the lives of young people. Young people are so full of potential & I want to help others to discover and embrace this.
