We are seeking to employ two  enthusiastic individuals who have exceptional drive and passion for influencing positive impact upon the lives of young people for our Youth Service.

The Youth Outreach Co-ordinator will be responsible for the delivery and continued development of the Youth Engagement Service whilst co-ordinating a range of existing activities and a package of support with the help of a Youth Worker and team of volunteers.  The Youth Outreach Worker will support the Youth Outreach Co-ordinator in the delivery of the service

Each role is offered a one half of a full time job share and is an exciting and unique opportunity to shape and grow the service at the beginning of 3 years of newly secured funding.

For the last 10 years A Way Out’s well established Youth Engagement Service has worked with vulnerable young people in local areas of high deprivation who are at increased risk of dis-engaging from learning, and of becoming involved at an early age in anti-social behaviour, offending and alcohol misuse.

The Service delivers a highly innovative, relational, multi-component model to break the cycle of disadvantage, and tackle issues before they become entrenched.   The delivery embraces an asset based approach around a programme of positive and healthy lifestyle group activities, 1-1 intensive support sessions, a summer holiday programme of recreational and educational activities and trips, a social action project and focus group feedback sessions for children and young people aged 8-11. For young people aged 11-12 years, who are experiencing difficulty with transition from primary to secondary school, we are developing a new weekly positive activity and 1-1 support programme.

If you have the motivation, enthusiasm and skills to  engage with such young people please see below for full job description, person specification and application form.
