About us

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.

Boys’ Development Programme

The Boys’ Development Programme is delivered to boys in the final years of primary school, preparing for transition, and to boys at varying stages of secondary school. Combining one-to-one mentoring and group sessions, the programme encourages boys to improve their skills in effective communication, conflict management and emotional literacy.

Delivered through one-to-one and group sessions, the Ventoring approach gives boys and men the opportunity and space to vent, to experience a teachable moment that leads to mentoring and coaching. The end goal? To increase opportunities for boys and men, empower them to seek a life with positive choices, and to inspire them to become dynamic future men.

We advocate for boys and men through influencing policy and practice, whilst addressing the stereotypes around masculinity and engaging in the wider conversation of what it means to be a man. Our work addresses some of the biggest societal issues facing this group, such as low education attainment, poor mental health and youth violence.
