The Shieldfield Youth Programme creates a space for young people to come together in the place where they live, build new friendships, and offers opportunities for them to develop their creative skills and talents and to explore new ways of thinking and doing things together. It aims to empower people to become active members of the local community and is locally rooted, thematically strong and aims to instil values of solidarity, social and economic justice and creativity.
The youth worker will understand the interests of young people and will be passionate about nurturing and empowering the children and young people of Shieldfield to be leaders in the place where they live and address the issues that affect them. They will be committed to creative thinking about working alongside young people as part of the process as well as through the programme.
