MEET THE TEAM
We love hosting youth events, with the biggest of the year being our end of year celebration – of course this has been missing during the pandemic but we can’t wait to make it bigger and better in 2022.
Are you looking to sponsor one of our youth events? Sponsoring an event is a fantastic opportunity to provide us with the vital funding and support which means we can continue supporting hundreds of young people across Shropshire.
You can keep up to date with our youth events programme by signing up to our newsletter.FIND OUT MORE
Supporting voluntary clubs
Do you run a youth club and feel that you would like some extra equipment or support?
SYA can provide you with a range of equipment and the appropriate support to help you ensure that your club is offering the best possible activities for young people. Our passionate team will visit your youth club and give you a helping hand with activities, bring your chosen equipment with them and run specialist activities for young people alongside your own volunteers. We know you can never have too many pairs of hands at a youth club!
You can find more information on hiring equipment here.
Working with young people can be one of the most rewarding things you do. When you become a member of Team SYA, not only will you contribute to the growth and development of Shropshire’s young people, but you will also have the opportunity to learn a variety of life skills that you’ll carry with you throughout your life. Working for a youth charity is such a rewarding role and will leave you with memories to last a lifetime.
We offer a number of part-time roles including Leaders in Charge, Level 3 JNC Youth Support Workers, Level 2 JNC Youth Support Workers and Youth Support Workers in Training (no qualifications required).FIND OUT MORE
It is important that our Clubs have staff and volunteers with up to date DBS certificates. We are an umbrella body for DBS and can check and submit your DBS applications. In many cases this will be free for volunteers in our clubs.
As an umbrella body we can also check and submit DBS applications on behalf of other organisations for a small administration charge.
Current DBS charges apply for checks for paid staff in addition to our administration fees.
For advice, information, and to request an application pack please email: firstname.lastname@example.org
Supporting Unitary, town und parish councils
Do you run a local council? Have you got a project you want to launch?
We provide the necessary support to local councils through community initiatives – such as Brookside and Stirchley Youth Club.
