Location: Amberley Youth Hub, Warwick Avenue
Hours: 35hrs per week. Monday to Friday. Regular evenings until c.8.30pm.
Salary: £31,000 to £34,000 depending on experience.
Future Men is a specialist charity that provides emotional and practical support for boys and young men. Through our practice-led services, we work with boys and men from childhood to 25 to help them become healthy, dynamic, future men. From structured school programmes and youth hubs, to individual one-to-one sessions and outreach work, we provide the vital support and advocacy that changes boys and young men’s lives for the better. We focus our work with boys and men who face structural discrimination and disadvantage, including of race, income, and community.
Our Youth Hubs play a key part in helping boys and young people’s personal and social development. Based in Westminster, The Amberley and Churchill Gardens, provide a space for young people aged 8-19 to take part in activities such as music production, sport and games, as well as development programmes such as healthy relationships, inclusion and diversity training. Bridging the gap between formal and non-formal education, we help young people learn about themselves, and others around them to create positive outcomes for their futures.
About the Role
As a Senior Youth Worker you will be responsible for the development and delivery of the youth hub programmes:
You will set, organise and run community programmes aimed at young people aged between 8 and 19. Through these programmes, you'll help them to explore and understand their ideas, values and beliefs, building their confidence and life skills so that they can make a successful transition to adulthood. A key element will be to support new developments, identify best practice and embed these in current services, in line with Future Men’s mission, strategy and business plan.
You will be responsible for the smooth and efficient running of the club - ensuring organisational processes and youth club quality standards are maintained. You will line manage youth club staff and volunteers, ensuring their performance, support and development.
You will monitor, evaluate and report on the service delivery at the club and support work to secure funding to allow the service to continue and grow. You will network and liaise with key external stakeholders that support the development, funding and spread of the work in your area.
You may also be responsible of the design and delivery of limited sessions off site, including at our other youth hub.
