Volunteers’ Week: Meet Ras Levi
Occupation: Rastafari Chaplin and Community Activist | Volunteer role: Library Assistant and Exhibition Guide
What did you choose to volunteer with BCA?
Simply to offer my skills and experience, to acknowledge and support the establishment, BCA and the community. Also, to facilitate when possible communication and good relations amongst staff, friends and community.
What have you learnt from volunteering?
From being a volunteer, I have met people involved in community activities and development, lots of researchers, students, officials from various groups and organisation from near and far.
I have learnt to appreciate differences, the value of sharing knowledge and the significance of BCA as a unique tool for the community.
What advice would you give to anyone interested in volunteering?
My advice to anyone interested in volunteering is do not be afraid to offer your skills and ideas. Take time to learn about our history; be aware of opportunities available. Be friendly and care for others.
We would like to say a massive thank you to Ras Levi and all our volunteers for all their hard work at BCA.
