This is an exciting new post developing and delivering our Youth Peer Mentoring Programmes across the YMCA and taking them to the next level so we can reach more young people and impact on their lives.
The post is part of a new national Y’s Girls Mentoring programme and will involve working closely with colleagues in YMCA England & Wales, YMCA Scotland and those other YMCAs across the UK who are delivering the programme. It will also involve working locally with colleagues in social work, police and education to develop mentoring pathways and community engagement.
The post holder will recruit, train and support a team of volunteer mentors (over 18’s) to prevent vulnerable young girls from developing mild to moderate mental health difficulties by engaging them in a range of positive activities. You will engage with other professionals in joint agency referral, support and evaluation processes and will work with other service providers to provide diversion and prevention opportunities to the client group.
You will work closely with our Peer Mentoring Schools programmes proving line management to the Youth Worker delivering these creating pathways for young people between programmes.
A working week of 37.5 hours, this will involve delivery after school and early evenings two to three times per week.
