Love working with young people? We are recruiting!
KWMC’s young people’s team, Jump Studios, are looking for Associate Youth Facilitators who have a passion for supporting young people express their creativity through arts, tech and media. We are currently running socially distanced sessions after school and keen to find new people who are great at working with young people and would enjoy being part of a dream team!
We are currently looking for a creative youth worker to support on Control Alt Delete and Maker City, two of Jump Studios’ after-school programmes:
Control Alt Delete is our exciting after school for young people who are interested in tech, coding and gaming. Control Alt Delete provides a fun, safe space for young people to explore creative technologies and to develop the skills and tools to become creators!
Maker City is a STEAM (science, technology, engineering, arts and maths) project for young people who are interested in learning about digital making, creative technologies and social action. The main aim of Maker City is to encourage young people to problem solve and learn new skills whilst building confidence in digital making and new technologies such as laser cutters, 3D printers and digital embroidery machines.
We’re looking for enthusiastic people to support the facilitation of these workshops as well as the ability to support the young people’s mental health and wellbeing.
We want individuals who are great at working with young people and are happy to get stuck in. If you know nothing about creative technology, coding or social action we can train you; if you know everything, that’s a bonus! Either way, we’d love to hear from you.
Hours: 2 x 2-hour workshops per week and adhoc / cover sessions, commencing the week of 1st May 2021: Mondays, 4.15 – 6.15pm and Tuesdays, 4.15 – 6.15pm
