Location: Bexley, North Kent, West Kent
Contract Type: Full-Time
Closing Date: 03/05/2019
This summer around 1000 young people aged 15-17 will be taking part in the NCS programme run by Charlton Athletic Community Trust (CACT) across South East London and Kent. NCS is a 3/4 week programme designed to help young people become more rounded individuals by building their confidence and developing life skills.
The programme involves a week away at an activity camp followed by a week on site at a prestigious university. After this, the participants will then return to their local communities to plan and deliver a social action project of their design.
To help deliver this exciting programme, CACT is looking for enthusiastic and committed applicants to work in the role of Youth Mentor. Youth Mentors will work alongside an Assistant Youth Mentor to guide a team of 10-15 young people through their NCS experience.
In their role, Youth Mentors will have to encourage, motivate and inspire their team to get the most out of their NCS experience. To do this, candidates will need to be confident and engaging whilst leading their team by example. Where team members face challenges on programme, it will be the task of the Youth Mentor to provide guidance in the form of supportive and constructive advice.
NCS is an experience of a lifetime that has the potential to change a young person’s outlook and future. As a Youth Mentor, you will therefore get the chance to inspire the youth of today by acting as a positive role model. To help achieve this goal, CACT will provide training and support to help all successful candidates excel in their role.
