Are you a young leader, business owner, entrepreneur or legend who is passionate about helping young people enter the workforce? We are looking for young people to facilitate, co-facilitate and act as mentors in our Youth Take Overs.
Facilitators will work with the Youth Take Over Director to plan and organise a relevant Take Over that supports young people to gain transferrable workplace skills, industry knowledge and contacts.
You will develop a 6–8-week program around an industry or Take Over idea in which you have expertise – this could be in your own business or working in partnership with another organisation.
You will be responsible for creating each week’s activity and organising industry mentors to come and chat to the group. You will oversee and coordinate the groups project, ensuring they have all the skills and knowledge needed to produce their product/event etc.
Your Assistant Facilitator will help with general running and organising of the Take Over. Facilitators will be paid for their time and expertise and after the Take Over, will be able to act as referee for the participants.
If this is something you’d be interested in, please get in contact with our Director, Ella Hughes, to discuss.
Assistant Facilitators will help deliver a quality Take Over to young participants.
You will help with the administration and organisation of each week’s activities, assist the participants with practical needs, and connect with our Youth Engagement Coordinator to ensure young participants are able to participate fully.
As a young person yourself, you will use your networks and connections to help promote the Take Over and find participants. The Assistant Facilitator will receive payment for their time. If this is something you’d be interested in please get in contact with our director, Ella Hughes, to discuss.
Mentors will be engaged to participate in each Take Over.
These industry experts will bring in-depth skills and knowledge to the Take Over and will share their work and career journey, giving participants unique insight into career pathways and working life.
Mentors are asked to share contact details with participants to become part of a network of people they can call on for advice as they enter the workforce.
It is hoped that many Mentors will come from industries that have entry level jobs available and will consider Youth Take Over participants as applicants for these roles.
If you’d like to donate a couple of hours of your time to support young people, then please don’t hesitate to get in touch.
