Tweeddale Youth Action (TYA) is the lead organisation for youth-work provision in Tweeddale. We offer 10-25 year-old young people living in Peebles, Innerleithen and the surrounding areas, a safe alternative to hanging around bus stops and street corners.

As Tweeddale Youth Action’s Senior Youth Worker you will lead and support TYA’s Youth Workers in planning, delivering and evaluating meaningful activities and group work that respond to young people’s needs. You will share best practice with the team, leading through example as well as demonstrating your understanding of theme-based group work which will help to inform age-appropriate inputs that positively influence young people’s health and well-being.
