We are looking for passionate and committed person to lead on a new project that works with young people from refugee and asylum backgrounds. This role is an opportunity to be part of the Citizenship Foundation's innovative work to support stronger communities, helping people to address complex social issues using peaceful and democratic means.
You will manage a new project that brings together young asylum seekers and refugees with their peers from established communities to work jointly on issues of common concern. The aim will be to help young people develop political literacy skills and bring about real and lasting social change.
To meet this challenge the right candidate will possess an understanding of issues faced by refugees and asylum seekers; the political structures within the UK; experience of training young people and adults and skills in mediation and peaceful conflict resolution. We hope that you will also bring or develop a sense of the importance of empowering young people with political literacy skills to help them in positively shaping their own lives and our wider society.
