Youth Project Leader
This is a perfect role if you want support to advance your career, make a difference in the lives of young people whilst earning an additional income. You’ll need to be available 5 hours per week to lead ReachOut mentoring sessions to a group of 12-16 young people and their volunteer mentors in a primary or secondary school.
Who we are and what we do
ReachOut is a mentoring charity that works with young people from disadvantaged communities in London, Greater Manchester and Liverpool to raise aspirations and help them grow in character and academic attainment. Our mission is to help young people live good, happy and successful lives.
Pay & training
ReachOut is committed to being an inclusive and diverse organisation, and we live by our core Character Strengths of Fairness, Good judgement, Self-Control and Staying Power. We therefore welcome applications from people of all ethnicities, ages, religious beliefs, gender identities, sexual orientation and any other protected characteristics, to provide a diverse range of experience, ideas and insights into our work.
We recognise that having support from staff and volunteers with a shared experience, can further help our young people develop and learn. More than half of the young people we work with are from Black Caribbean, Black African, Bangladeshi and Turkish backgrounds, yet we tend to get fewer applications from people within these communities.
ReachOut wants to increase the representation of our young people amongst our Project Leaders, so if you are from these ethnic groups, we would particularly appreciate receiving your applications.
Please read our information pack for full details about ReachOut and the Project Leader job role.
To apply for the Leadership Programme, please visit our website to complete the application form and remember to attach your CV.
We aim to respond to applications within 2 weeks of receiving your application. Applications will be assessed as they come in and assessment centres will be held on a rolling basis. Once the position is filled the vacancy will be closed so applicants are advised to apply early.
Please note, if you are a successful candidate you will be required to undergo an enhanced criminal records check with the Disclosure and Barring Service. ReachOut will cover the cost of the check and guide you through the process. All staff have a responsibility to safeguard and promote the welfare of children and adults. The post holder will undertake the appropriate level of training and is responsible for ensuring that they understand and work within the safeguarding policies of the organisation.
