Duration: 25 hours per week
Base: YCSA office at 48 Darnley Street, Glasgow, G41 2SE
YCSA are looking for dedicated and motivated individuals to join our team. We are hoping to increase the range of activities available for BME youth in Glasgow and overcome barriers many of them face in moving towards a positive future.

Projects and workshops will utilise creative engagements such as sport, music, art, film making, and other expressive mediums and will promote self- development and access to further opportunities whilst looking at a range of issues affecting young people such as communication difficulties (literacy and English), lack of aspiration/employment skills, conflict, anger management, radicalisation, sectarianism, online safety, relationships, goal setting and personal development.
