As a Youth Work Academy team member you will be working with the XLP schools team and will have the opportunity to work in schools helping young people with literacy and numeracy. You will be on the ground and also aboard the XLP bus!
Your role will involve helping mentor young people on a 1-1 basis and helping senior staff run group workshops for young people who are not motivated to learn or at risk of exclusion.
You will also help with the XLP after school clubs based on their Mobile Youth Centres in South East London (yes, this is the bus!)
These mobile youth centres enable a team of experienced youth workers to provide a range of services for young people. Whether table tennis or trivial pursuit, cooking or competitions, games consoles or group discussions, FIFA or Forza, XLP use their buses to help London’s young people create their positive future.
You will provide a huge helping hand in creating a safe and encouraging place for the young people XLP support to get together, have fun, get advice and have new experiences as we come out of lockdown.
What makes a great XLP team member?
If you’ve got it, flaunt it (if not, Google it!)
The above experience is great to have, but don’t worry if not - they are not essential criteria to you applying for the role.
