We are a specialist charity supporting positive male activity, engagement and involvement. Future Men has expertise in the challenges and solutions in working with boys and men who are socially or economically disadvantaged, marginalised or isolated.
Our interventions focus on the transitional times in life such as starting school, getting a job or becoming a parent; these are the times when men and boys are most likely to encounter challenges and therefore most likely to engage or seek help. Our aim is to significantly reduce the number of boys and men, particularly from socially excluded or disadvantaged backgrounds, who are unable to achieve their full potential to become productive and active members of society.
Our Youth Hubs play a key part in helping young people’s personal and social development. Based in Westminster, they provide a space for young people aged 8-19 to take part in activities such as music production, sport and games, as well as development programmes such as healthy relationships, inclusion and diversity training. Bridging the gap between formal and non-formal education, we help young people learn about themselves, and others around them to create positive outcomes for their futures.
We are looking for an energetic, proactive and self-motivated individual with highly developed communication and interpersonal skills, experienced at working with young people. The person will work as part of a team of workers, led by the Youth Hubs Manager, to run our estate based youth project in Westminster. You will have a strong track record engaging with young people, especially those from disadvantaged communities. You will support direct youth work delivery to the young people. The successful candidate should be able to use standard IT such as Outlook, word, excel. We also use a monitoring software for evaluating and recording outcomes of the work.
The post holder will be based at the Youth Hub/s.
You will have experience of planning and evaluating services and a proven record of delivering and leading on good quality and innovative work to young people.
You will have worked with young people across different ages and ethnicities.
You will have a good knowledge of approaches that work with groups of young people. It would be a particular advantage to have experience of how to advise post 16 year olds on the next steps.
