Youth Service Staff Profile Interview
Youth Service volunteer Richard (Rocky) Redmond recently met with Irish Wheelchair Association (IWA) Youth Service Personal Assistant (PA) Tracey Young to have a quick chat and see what she’s all about!
Rocky: Hi Tracey, so how long have you been involved with the youth service?
Tracey: I have been involved in the Youth Services with IWA for the last year and a half.
Rocky: So do you enjoy it?
Tracey: I really enjoy working with the gang from the Youth Service especially at the discos which take place once a month. Last year, I also went away with the youth group to Share Village in Fermanagh http://www.sharevillage.org .We went for the weekend and we all had a ball, the ‘craic’ was ninety. We all got on great, like one big happy family. The only downfall of the weekend was the Youth Workers- enough said I will say no more (only joking). But the honest answer to the question, Rocky, is I love working with the Youth Service.
Rocky: So apart from keeping busy with IWA, what do you like to do in your spare time?
Tracey: In my spare time I enjoy going to see my children, Sarah and Evan, playing their GAA games at the weekend. I also enjoy spending time with my family and friends. That’s all I can say, if I give you anymore information I might get sacked from the Youth Service (haha!).
Rocky: Ok Tracey, quick fire round. Readyyyyy…..

2) Favourite band/singer- Daniel O’Donnell, favourite song (Fifty Shades of Green)

Rocky: Tracey, if you had 3 wishes what would you wish for?

Rocky: Have you any nice holidays planned for the summer?
Tracey: I have a family holiday planned for Spain in August which I’m looking forward to after all the hard work I do with the Youth Service (it’s badly needed).
Rocky: Ok Tracey, one final question…and answer truthfully- do you have anything nice to say about the youth workers, Stephen and Dave?
Tracey: Truthfully the youth workers Stephen and Dave are great blokes, so easy to work with and great ‘craic’. I find that both lads are very approachable and do a great job.
Rocky: Great Tracey thanks, see you soon.
