Youth and Schools Worker, Birmingham
An exciting opportunity to join a leading and innovative youth organisation based in Birmingham, with a global reach.
Are you passionate about young people? Do you want to become part of a growing team that brings young people of different faiths together across the city? We are looking for an experienced youth and schools worker to join our team at The Feast.
About The Feast
Young people today are growing up in a country surrounded by different faiths yet often lead separate lives. As a result young people can experience barriers of ignorance, fear and mistrust in their communities, which sometimes leads to hostility or conflict.
The Feast is an award-winning, pioneering Christian youth charity that works with young people of different faiths to help them make friends, talk about faith and be peacemakers in the world. The charity started in Birmingham in 2009 and now works in Birmingham, Bradford, Luton and East London. It has also inspired work in Lebanon, Sudan, Switzerland, Egypt, Australia and the USA. Our vision is to see young people of different faiths and cultures coming together to form real friendships that enable them to be peacemakers amongst their peers and in the world.
The post is full time (There might be a possibility for a job-share arrangement for the right candidates). You will be part of a team of youth workers who work with community and school groups, introducing The Feast to young people and running youth encounters, where young people of different faiths come together to have fun, talk about faith and identity and become friends. You will have access to training along with the advantages of working in a friendly and supportive team.
