Vacant positions

Youth Worker

EXTENDED DEADLINE – Applications close 5pm Wednesday 16 October

Position Overview

This is a project funded by FRRR ABC Heywire

Manna Gum is one of seventeen organisations around Australia selected to pilot an innovative idea developed by young leaders at the 2019 ABC Heywire Regional Youth Summit in Canberra in February. The projects are designed to tackle youth-identified issues facing young people in rural areas. We have grant funding to implement the ‘Our Place’ concept – creating a safe space for young people to meet in their local town. Over the next nine months this position is funded to work together with the manager and young people in Corner Inlet to pilot a weekly evening youth centre.

As a pilot project, Manna Gum will employ a youth worker over the first two school terms of 2020. The first part of the project will be to consult with local young people about their needs (5 weeks, commencing in November 2020) and then to run a weekly youth cafe/club for 20 weeks. This will be followed by 3 weeks to evaluate the project and seek further funding and ongoing partnerships with the aim of making the project sustainable into the future.
