We now have a vacancy based in our Aberdeen city centre project working on our provision supporting Youth Justice Services. If you would like to play a part in this exciting initiative, we now require a Personal Development Mentor to join our team.
For this post we are looking for people with an interest in working with young people with specific needs and differing abilities. You will be responsible for delivering group activity based interventions, engaging with young people who are known to police for offending behaviour.
Activities will aim to improve young people’s personal and social responsibility, along with their own sense of self-respect and the creation of more positive peer groups. This service is a new service to Aberdeen, focusing on the families of Aberdeen. It brings together 5 organisations in order to fully support a young person and their family.
