This includes helping run various fun activities & games (activity based learning - games with a point), build relationships with the young people, & possible (and if appropriate & approved) build a mentoring-type relationship with young people.

Requirements

Empathy & relate-ability with young people/teens - you enjoy them.
A sense of humour, fun & challenge.
Be a positive role model.

There are up to three weekend camps each year - would be a big plus if you are able to do these as well. Own transport is a big advantage. We are a Christian organisation operating out of a Christian values base, so you'd need to be happy to work in that framework & context.

A Police background check is required for this role.

Time commitment

Either each Tuesday evening or each Wednesday evening, 6.00 to 9.00 pm, from March through to November (but excluding school holiday time); plus three weekend camps over the year.

On Wednesday evenings, dinner is provided.
