Charity recruits new staff to support young people in Trowbridge
Trowbridge Future is celebrating the app
ointment of a new youth worker to support its sessions across the town and is encouraging more people to consider joining the growing charity.
Emily Andrews, who is a Teaching Assistant at Studley Green Primary School, is now working at the structured youth sessions at the charity’s Seymour Hub, helping to run events and activities and support the children and young people.
“I’m really enjoying getting to know the young people and feeling that I’m making a difference to their day,” said Emily Andrews, newly appointed youth worker at Trowbridge Future. “We run some really fantastic craft sessions, games and activities and we have a lot of fun, as well as being there for the young people if they have issues they want to talk about.”
The charity runs weekly sessions in the afternoon and evenings in Longfield, Seymour and Studley Green from Tuesday to Thursday.
“We’re so pleased to welcome Emily to our Youth Worker team,” said Meg Aubrey, Chief Executive of Trowbridge Future. “We’re a small charity at a very exciting time of development, thanks to our National Lottery funding, and we are looking forward to recruiting more staff. We are especially keen to hear from people with particular skills and experience they would like to share with young people.”
The charity is recruiting additional Youth Workers, and anyone experienced with working with young people who would like to contribute to the youth afternoon and evening sessions, from three to 15 hours per week, is invited to send a CV and covering letter to email@example.com
