Job description

We are looking for young people aged 13 to 21 years old who live in London (especially close to the River Thames) to  help us create a new youth organisation called RYP (Riverside Youth Project). We want to provide positive activities for young people and need your help to help us shape what this new project will become.

Hello, We Are RYP (Riverside Youth Project)

RYP (Riverside Youth Project) is a start-up charity, 100% volunteer run and will be working with young people aged 13-19 years old to provide them with positive activities and positive futures. We are a brand-new start-up charity that will be based along the River Thames which places the initiative of young people at the heart of our charity, with our Young Leaders taking an active and leading role in the governance, planning our direction and activities.

We will run a variety of youth work activities and projects for young people from disadvantaged backgrounds, designed to engage and inspire them, building their confidence and skillset to help them begin their journey towards adulthood, whilst enjoying all the incredible opportunities the River Thames and London has to offer young people.

Our Mission

Our mission is simple; the provision of positive activities to support young people towards prosperous futures. We place young people at the centre of our project, creating a space in which they feel safe and supported, enabling them to grow and flourish. The fun and engaging activities we run for young people empower them to build their confidence and their support networks, giving them friendships and skills which they can take forwards into bright futures
