We’re recruiting two Senior Youth Engagement Coordinators!

At Peer Power we’re all about system change and individual change for young people by putting empathy at the heart of what we do. By utilising the principles of co-production and shared decision making, we work alongside our Young Partners to develop and deliver projects in a variety of youth justice, social care and healthcare settings. 

We’re excited to be recruiting Senior Youth Engagement Coordinators across two important areas of our work.

Peer to Professional/Young Campaigner

You will lead our Peer to Professional programme, supporting our Young Partners to build skills and gain experience to grow from a Peer to a Professional, and our Young Campaigners programme, supporting 12 Young Campaigners to lead social action projects on issues that are important to them.

  • You’ll be passionate about co-creating activities with young people to identify and progress their own personal and professional goals to help them achieve their dreams.
  • You’ll have professional experience of engaging with young people who have lived experience of justice and care services, and are from marginalised and under-represented communities.
  • You will be able to create working conditions in which young people feel secure, confident, loved and valued and in which they are increasingly able to take control of their own activities and share decisions, with their knowledge and experience being highly valued.
  • You’ll enjoy building and maintaining strong, meaningful and trusted relationships with a wide range of partners including corporates, health, justice, social care and voluntary sector community organisations to create opportunities for young people.

Violence Reduction and Secure Settings

You will reach and connect with Young Partners, within the community and in secure settings, who have lived experience of community violence and the youth justice system, and support them to have their voice heard and to influence change in systems and communities that exist to support them.

  • You’ll have professional experience of engaging with young people who have lived experience of justice and care services, and are from marginalised and under-represented communities.
  • You will enjoy co-creating, delivering and co-ordinating multiple youth engagement projects and activities in partnerships with secure settings  and communities in London and across the South East.
  • You have experience of building and maintaining strong, meaningful and trusted relationships with a wide range of  partners including secure settings, health, justice, social care and voluntary sector community organisations to create opportunities for young people.
