Youth Development Worker

  • Full time

  • Greenock
  • Closing 31st January 2020

Ocean Youth Trust Scotland is a leading youth work charity. Through their adventurous residential sailing voyages and the help of hundreds of volunteers, they support young people aged 12-25 to realise their true potential through youth work on the waves.

Since 2008, the Scottish Government has committed £110 million to community initiatives to improve the quality of life of young people right across Scotland.

OYT Scotland currently work with groups in areas of high social and economic deprivation, and demand is high from these groups to provide them with additional voyages that can reach new intakes of young people. They aim to target groups such as these where we feel the largest difference can be made through Early and Effective Intervention (EEI).

OYT Scotland has an exciting new role as Youth Development Worker that will be key to delivering a national funded project in line with the Scottish Government’s initiatives to support young people.

Building on the success of their highly lauded previous programmes, this will be a longer-term personal development journey aimed specifically at young people most at risk of offending or entering the judicial system.
