Experience Eastside Youth
Government cuts have be killing off youth work in London since 2010 with over 104 statutory centres being closed down and 562 youth worker jobs being lost and that’s not including the closures of charities and community projects who were reliant on that funding as well, where East London has been taking the hardest hits and often the dreams of young people going with it, leaving young people often with no-where to turn and the increase of anti-social behaviour, crime and also young people’s mental health on the increase, including self-harm and suicide.
It is also estimated that this financial year (2019/20) alone, another huge £1m cuts are being issued by the Government.
Eastside Youth is a new grassroots youth work charity taking a fresh approach to youth work and providing support to the varied and diverse youth communities of East London, where we aim to ensure that Youth Work really does change young people’s lives, helping young people become confident, informed and empowered to be proud of who they are as unique individuals and in providing transformative youth work that helps change lives for the better.
Eastside Youth has some brand-new exciting opportunities coming soon and we are expanding rapidly with a new base, new projects across East London and new partnerships in the pipeline as the demand for our work is ever increasing, but we can’t meet this need and achieve our goals of filling gaps in service provision without your support.
One of our youth projects is Colours, an LGBT+ Youth Group in Tower Hamlets (E2) for 16-25-year-old young people who identify as LGBT+ and is held on a Thursday evening from 6-9pm.
We have an exciting and amazing volunteering opportunity for someone who is interested in taking up the challenge of being one of our Colours Youth Workers where you will plan, organise and facilitate activities and sessions for young people, provide 1-2-1 support and also promote the health and wellbeing our young people attending.
We are looking for someone with passion for working with young people and youth work, confident and solution focused, who is self-motivated, able to turn up on time and is hands on and able to get things done, while being very organised with excellent communication and presentation skills.
