Details

Young Gloucestershire (YG) is a countywide charity that supports disadvantaged young people (aged 11-25) who are facing challenges in their lives. YG supports young people who are facing some very difficult times; whether it be a disruptive home life, caring for a family member or coping with a mental health issue. Young people turn to us for help and we offer them practical ways to find confidence and develop the skills they need to get on track and to move into a job, education or training. YG’s vision is for young people to have the confidence motivation and skills to improve their lives. We work to achieve this vision by creating opportunities that educate, inform and inspire.

Duties

Our seasonal staff are at the heart of NCS, and we’re proud of the thousands of people who motivate, lead and inspire young people on their NCS journey. Each programme runs over 4 weeks, and will be with teams of up to 15 young people aged 16-17. There will be 2 members of staff per team and senior staff on site. Week 1 is an activity residential, Monday to Friday, at centres across the UK. Week 2 is another residential, Monday - Friday, this time focused on developing skills for life - leadership, communication skills, organisational skills and project management. Week 3 and 4 are based in the local community and involve the planning and delivery of a social action project, making a lasting difference in their local community. All training will be provided. We have start dates across the summer and the possibility for up to 8 weeks of work, earning £2475.

What skills are required?

Some experience working with young people would be beneficial but not essential. What we are looking for is people with the right attitude to ensure we are able to run a fun and safe NCS programme this summer. All training will be provided.

Earn £1237.50 per 4 week programme.
