Lauren Cavanagh

Affiliated with Australian Volunteers International (AVI), Lauren is our new volunteer who is going to be our Youth Program Coordinator for the next year. “I am excited to be at YCM. I find the people friendly, and the atmosphere is lovely,” said Lauren.

So far, she has been observing the programs and the roles of the staff at YCM. “What I like about the foundation is that the students are supported to achieve both academic skills, as well as practical and personal development. I would like to be involved in the programs and support the staff to continue developing YCM’s goals, as well as promoting the foundation in order to recruit more students.”

Lauren is a social worker, and prior to her arrival in Indonesia, she was working as a school counselor. When interviewed, she said that she would be interested to have some teaching experience at YCM, too.
