DO YOU HAVE A PASSION FOR WORKING WITH YOUNG PEOPLE?
We are looking to recruit Volunteers to join our team, working out in the local community for our detached project! Bring your skills and interests to the role and help support and empower young people to reach their full potential!
We are looking for confident candidates with strong communication skills and who can help offer support and guidance to young people as part of the Street Reach team. You do not have to have held the position of Youth Worker before, but you will be a confident communicator, have a passion for working with young people and be able to inspire them. Full training is provided.
On the detached project, we engage with young people in need through weekly ‘detached’ outreach sessions. Our teams of youth workers visit each of our target communities, getting to know the young people that we encounter, and offering information and support. We work in the areas of highest deprivation and in areas where there are limited services available to young people. Currently we target the communities of Weeke, Harestock, Winnall, Stanmore and Highcliffe. We work directly with young people encountered on the streets; this could be in shop fronts, local parks or simply on the street corner.
This is a unique and rewarding role with part-time hours to fit around your other commitments. The work will be based in Winchester and surrounding areas.
The Volunteer Youth Worker will work within the organisation’s policies and practices, and will give full regard to Child Protection issues and the rights of the individual.
The specific timing and schedule for these roles can be determined at a later stage, based on mutual agreement and availability.
