Young People Looking Forward programme.

YCSA Young People Look Forward is a new project designed to work with Black and Minority Ethnic (BME) young people aged 14 -18 most impacted by lockdown, cancellation of exams, and disruption to their education. It is aimed to give them back hope for the future, increase confidence, widen their choices, develop soft skills needed for employability, and help prepare them for positive destinations in life beyond school.

YCSA Young People Look Forward will provide two main workstreams:

a) Groupwork programmes around employability and activity groups to develop confidence and soft skill.

b) Mentoring primarily carried out by volunteers from BME backgrounds who can provide young people with role models and help them widen their perspective on future possibilities.

The Programme Lead will be an experienced youth worker with experience of developing and managing projects. The Programme Lead will have the responsibility of providing strategic direction for the programme, with responsibilities for accurately reporting to funders in addition to monitoring and evaluation of the programme. The Programme Lead will be responsible for managing a small team, made up of sessional staff and volunteers. The Programme Lead will work closely with the YCSA Manager to seek appropriate funding for the development and continuation of the programme and to link the work with the development of YCSA’s strategic direction.
