Could you be a Volunteer Youth Work Coach?

We are looking for volunteers to join our Ratio team, who have the creative skills, the passion and enthusiasm to make a positive difference to the lives of young people. Ratio is a one-to-one provision tailored to provide support for young people aged 11-16 who are at risk of disengaging from mainstream education in Torbay.

We are looking for volunteers who understand the issues facing young people today and will strive to build positive relationships with each young person, so that the you can guide each session to the young person’s specific needs, interests, skills, and knowledge.

Your role will involve identifying a young person’s needs in terms of potential risk-taking behaviours, their potential to engage with education, volunteering, employment placements and training and their personal, social, and educational development.  You will support young people to become involved in the development and evaluation of Ratio.

We are primarily looking for volunteers in Torbay. Our sessions are typically 1 hour a week during school time, during term time only.

The role at Youth Genesis will be key in helping to shape and enhance what we offer young people and the community.

All Ratio volunteers have access to regular supervision and training, so that you are equipped with the tools to enable young people to make the necessary gear shift to enable them to succeed in education and home life.

If you are interested in volunteering or would like to know more about Ratio, please contact programme co-ordinator Steve on steve@youthgenesis.org.uk, or give us a call on 01803 463158.
