TeenHelp Winter Awards and Volunteer Of The Year 2017. - December 27th 2017, 08:24 PM

Hello everyone,

It's that time of the year when I am pleased to announce our "Winter Awards", which recognise and reward many different kinds of contributions to TeenHelp.

=====

Volunteer Of The Year

I am extremely pleased to issue this year's Volunteer Of The Year Award to Chess (Narrative.)

Chess has volunteered for TeenHelp for over seven years in loads of different roles - From HelpLINK, Live Help and Community Mentors, to Articles and Newsletter Editors, there aren't many areas Chess hasn't been part of!

"Chess is very kind and caring and goes the extra mile to make people feel supported and cared for." is one comment that stands out - And it's so true! So many people have been touched by Chess' thoughtful compassion over the years. "If someone needs Chess, Chess will always make time for them."

More recently Chess has been heavily involved in our publications, leading our Newsletter team and being part of our Articles team too, where their hard work has ensured we have kept publishing pieces regularly for everybody to benefit from.

"Chess is a great leader and is so good at bringing the team together"

Chess is also excellent at supporting, motivating and inspiring her fellow volunteers, and I'm sure most Staff eagerly await the annual "Staff Compliment Day".

Through it all, Chess remains "kind, upbeat, and funny". Chess is truly a remarkable individual and an asset to the TeenHelp team!

Congratulations Chess!

=====

Winter Awards

For our Winter Awards I would like to issue the following (in alphabetical order):
  • Emma (Golfing girl) - Although a fairly recent addition to our volunteer team, Emma has already made a huge impact. As one of our most active HelpLINK Mentors she has helped dozens of people already. She has shown great empathy and validation for members when helping them, a great first step on Staff that we hope will continue into next year!
  • Jenna (~Abibliophobe~) - Jenna continues to be a hard working and reliable volunteer, contributing across the site, from providing advice, moderating and supporting fellow Staff members. She is warm and friendly to everybody and the nominations show how appreciated she is.
  • Paige (xxpaigiexx) - Paige is one of TeenHelp's longest standing volunteers, having been a HelpLINK Mentor for around nine years. Her focus has always been on HelpLINK during that time and it has been great to see a regular, reliable face here for members when they need somebody.
Congratulations to everyone who has received a received an award!

Thank you to everyone for the huge number of nominations we received this year, it was great reading them all. Please continue submitting feedback and if you're ready to start your own volunteering story have a look at our Volunteer page to find out more.

Kind regards,
TeenHelp.

Congratulations Chess, Emma, Jenna, and Paige! Your awards are so well-deserved.


wanderlust consumed her;
foreign hearts & exotic minds compelled her.
she had a gypsy soul
and a vibrant heart for the unknown.

And Im leaving tomorrow, wha-do-ya say?

Congratulations to all of you! I've worked with some of you for several years, and others for a shorter period of time; however, I recognize and appreciate all that you have contributed, regardless of how long we've known each other for. =) Thank you for all you do to support TeenHelp's users and your fellow Staff members!

Congratulations to everyone who received a Winter Award, and thank you to everyone who nominated me for the Volunteer Of The Year Award. I am absolutely humbled to be given this award, and honoured to be able to contribute so much to such a wonderful site.




just because it hurts to go on
doesn't mean the battle can't still be won
