This is an exciting opportunity to join our growing organisation as a Youth Worker and Coach and be part of the Latin American Youth Forum (LAYF). Aimed at 13-19 year olds, LAYF supports young Latin Americans and Spanish/Portuguese speakers more widely to access education, training and employment, increase youth engagement, boost social and emotional capabilities and experience increased social cohesion. This project is delivered in partnership with Building Young Brixton (BYB), a consortium co-led by 9 Lambeth-based organisations, providing a broad and diverse offer for young people in the borough.
LAYF targets vulnerable young people (including NEETs and those who are working in low income positions) and consists of four main activities: (1) Creative ESOL (English for Speakers of Other Languages) Classes, (2) Skills/creative arts workshops, (3) In-depth career/education mentoring, and (4) engagement with BYB organisations through referrals and participation to joint activities/events. The Youth Worker will develop a dynamic activity programme and a consistent mentoring service, while working closely with the LAYF ESOL Teacher delivering ESOL classes and with the Family Support Worker supporting secondary school admission. LAYF has a bottom-up approach, and all activities are co-created with the young people.
The Youth Worker and Coach will be an excellent communicator in both English and Spanish (Portuguese desirable), who is passionate about social justice and will co-create an exciting programme of activities for the young people of LAYF. The Youth Worker will be able to handle service delivery with monitoring impact and communication (both outreach and social media) while ensuring the safety of the young people during face-to-face and remote activities.
Due to COVID-19, we are currently delivering activities remotely and planning to go back to face-to-face delivery once it's safe to do so.
