Key Accountabilities:

Lead the SYC Year 11 – 13s programme in conjunction with SYC Trust by arranging and empowering volunteer leaders to run the program and care for their youth, developing empowering local and global exposure experiences and providing clear communication about the programme with all stakeholders as required.

Both roles require; leading volunteer teams, the ability to pastorally care for all those involved, creating efficient, effective and empowering ways of working, leadership development and discipleship processes of young adults and youth programme volunteer leaders, and creating a positive and inclusive young adult vibe at our gathering spaces.
