Want to change the future?

All young people have huge potential but many struggle to achieve it because they lack the resources or self- belief or an example to inspire them. Could you coach, challenge and inspire a young person to make the most of their future?

Come and work as part of our local team as YMCA develops new services and opportunities for young people in Mendip & South Somerset. A background in Youth Work, community education,  teaching, counselling or supported housing can be really helpful but most important is creativity, energy , determination and an ability to relate positively to vulnerable and sometimes challenging young people.
