Bar ‘n’ Bus are seeking to appoint a Youth Development Worker to join our dynamic youth work team, extending and growing our work in Rochford.
Youth Development Workers pioneer, develop and co-ordinate youth work provision with a specific area of work. They recruit, train and lead youth work teams to sustain and grow this work as well as networking with churches, schools, voluntary and statutory agencies, and local authorities in order to increase impact.
Application Deadline: Noon, Friday 27th May
Bar‘N’Bus is a Christian charity working with young people throughout Essex.
We work in partnership with local churches, schools, councils and groups to provide professional, community-based youth work, seeking transformation and fullness of life for young people. We employ professional youth workers as well as recruiting, training and supporting teams of volunteers to offer a wider provision of community youth work.
Our heart is to provide programmes for young people in the location of their choosing, rather than bringing them to our own venues. A large amount of our work takes place ‘on the street’ with detached youth workers engaging young people in parks, high streets and playgrounds, as well as utilising mobile youth vehicles for outreach sessions. We also provide a large amount of in-school support with a growing volunteer mentoring programme, bespoke group work and commissioned counselling programmes.
