YMCA Worcestershire is a local independent charity, as part of the wider YMCA movement in England and Wales; the largest and oldest youth charity in the world. With a history dating back over 150 years, YMCA Worcestershire came into being in 2013 as a result of merging YMCA charities in Redditch and Worcester. We are a Christian charity with bases across Worcestershire and though we predominately support the needs of young people we aim to serve all members of the community regardless of faith, age, or gender.

We are looking for two part-time Youth and Community Tutors to work on our “YOU CAN” provision. The ”YOU CAN” programme is aimed at supporting young people from the Bromsgrove and Redditch areas in developing their skills and building their confidence. The course is made up of small groups who are experiencing difficulties and barriers in entering the job market.

The provision includes delivery of 12 week courses covering:

  • Health and Well Being
  • Life Skills, including cooking and budgeting
  • Employability

The successful candidate/s will have experience and qualifications within a similar role and would be required to assist with recruiting, designing and delivering course content.

Our primary areas of work are:

  • Family Work
  • Housing
  • Community Centres
  • Youth Work
  • Employability Programmes
  • Prison Work
