Post:                   Volunteer Youth Workers

Introduction

An exciting opportunity has arisen for a number of Volunteers to join the team at this Sunderland based Voluntary Sector Youth Organisation.

Youth Almighty are one of the North Easts Largest Youth Providers and are rapidly expanding due to its unique governance which is 100% youth led with funding recently being secured from a number of external funders.

Having recently been involved with the BBC in its own documentary “Under Age and Over the Limit” the project has seen large increases in access to its services and is therefore expanding to cope with local needs.

Youth Almighty are predominantly a Centre Based Provider of high standard Youth Provision, Training and Education but in addition we have a distinct model of detached engagement work that targets some of the area’s hardest to reach young people, working closely with our partners including the local authority, local schools, the police, RSL’s and LMAPs (Local Multi Agency Partnership).

We are now seeking exceptional individuals to engage with young people, form a trusted relationship and to support them.

The Role

You will work within a team of Youth Workers whose role is to locate and work with disaffected young people that are disengaged from mainstream provision and provide mentoring support and opportunities for personal and social development and to enable their transition into further education, training or employment.

Candidate Requirements

* Completed or working towards an introduction to youth work or equivalent as a minimum.  (Youth Almighty can provide this training free of charge)
* The ability to research local areas and seek out various opportunities for young people that provide opportunities for personal and social development.
* An understanding of the needs of socially excluded young people, skills to communicate effectively with young people and the ability to motivate and engage them positively.
* An ability to work flexibly and manage time effectively.

 



This is a challenging, but highly rewarding job, which will allow you to make a real difference to the lives of young people.

Any offer of employment for this post will be subject to a satisfactory Enhanced DBS Vetting.
