Sans Street Young Team
We’re Georgia and Becky, both 21. We’re part of the Peer Educators team at Sans Street Youth & Community Centre.
Before we worked here we were both volunteer Youth Workers at our local youth projects, Pallion Action Group and YMCA, who introduced us to the job vacancy and helped with our CV and interveiw tecnuiques.
We started our role here at Sans Street in September 2011 so far we have gained a lot more experience and a load of qualifications, such as;
Sports Leaders, Family Nurturing, Brief Alcohol intervention (NECA), Smoking Cessation Advisor Training (NECA), Money management, Emotional Resilience (MIND), Health Improvment. We’re also undergoing our Level 2 Qualification in Youth & Play Work.
We have been on residentials, worked at youth club drop ins, up our local schools on a dinner time and joint events. We are planning our next joint event which is olympic themed and we are looking forward to it.
Our role ends in August this year. We hope to find a permanant job in Youth Work when we leave so we can pass on our experience and knowledge that we have gained here at Sans Street. We also want to gain more experience and get more qualifications to help us progress as Youth Workers.
