Anne Frank Trust has a new Assistant Director for Youth Empowerment role created as part of a new education strategy which will launch a Youth Empowerment strand of work targeted especially at young people with lived experience of prejudice. The goal is to embody youth empowerment and leadership by 2023, including a Youth Board to support decision making at a strategic level for the Trust.
The role will be responsible for the development and delivery of the Youth Empowerment Programmes aimed at 10-15-year-olds, as well as for the development of an alumni network for ages 16+ who have gone through the Youth Ambassador programme.
You will ideally have a qualification in youth work or have experience of setting up and managing youth empowerment programmes. You may have lived experience of racism or prejudice and/or a strongly held belief in equality and diversity, so that the programme you develop will be deeply informed and enriching. This is a programme to engage and empower young people to feel recognised and valued, and to learn that their voices and experiences can make a genuine difference to themselves and the world around them.
You will need to have a creative flair to develop new initiatives as well as be organised to project manage a variety of different programmes at different stages of development. You will be someone who can operate strategically but also be willing to be hands-on when required in terms of delivery and engagement. Your people skills are highly important for this role, so being able to demonstrate experience of managing a remote team and building networks with a variety of external stakeholder would be advantageous.
