2 x Youth Worker (AOD & mental health focus)

The Les Twentyman Foundation believes that every child and young person, regardless of economic circumstances, race or gender deserves an equal opportunity in life. These two full-time Youth Worker roles will focus on supporting young people who have spiraled during the pandemic with a focus on mental health, and alcohol and other drugs (AOD). The purpose of the roles is to work with clients to provide specialised support, advice and referral, as part of a case plan. These entry -level roles will complement our existing programs including the Youth Support Service and Community Outreach activities.

Clients will include young people whose negative behaviours have escalated during lock-down, experimenting with or addicted to alcohol and drugs, and sometimes leading to criminal activities; young people experiencing mental health problems and families who need mediation and other services to navigate multiple, complex issues. These outreach roles will undertake some out-of-hours work and will have access to pool cars. Importantly these roles will work with youth and the broader family unit with the aim to connect young people with their families, community and education networks, in ways that are developmentally appropriate and responsive to the needs of individual young people. The two Youth Worker (AOD and mental health focus) roles are for a 6 month contract based in Footscray and Melbourne’s western suburbs.

Sports Development Coordinator

The Les Twentyman Foundation believes that every child and young person, regardless of economic circumstances, race or gender deserves an equal opportunity in life, and uses sport as an engagement tool to reach at-risk youth. Participation in organised sport and physical activity contributes to health and wellbeing. Regular participation in physical activity has positive physical, emotional, social and mental health benefits. Our 96ers Basketball Club was established in 1996 and is one of the most inclusive sporting programs in Victoria. Due to the pandemic, our basketball program was put on hold and we know that many children and young people have been missing out on their community sport.

The Sports Coordinator role provides an innovative solution to keeping young people connected to sporting activities, especially post the COVID-19 lock-down in Melbourne. This dedicated role will support parents and carers to register their children (with a focus on girls and young people from CALD backgrounds) to participate in community sport activities and access financial support where needed.  This is a 6month full time role (38 hours per week including Saturdays) based in Footscray with work across Greater Melbourne   Penalty rates apply and you will be given access to a pool car for work purposes.

2 x In School Youth Worker

The Les Twentyman Foundation believes that every child and young person, regardless of economic circumstances, race or gender deserves an equal opportunity in life. The Les Twentyman Foundation’s Positive Futures program embeds youth workers in four schools across Melbourne’s southeast. The program keeps students engaged with their education and provides support for complex social and emotional needs or behavioural problems. It includes one-on-one counselling, group work and outreach activities. Demand for support has doubled over the COVID-19 period.

The In School Youth Worker (six month contract) focuses on working closely with the host school, whilst matching strategies and interventions to the developmental requirements of young people.

The In School Youth Worker role has responsibility for a caseload as well as administrative aspects of the case management. This is an exciting opportunity to secure an entry level role working directly with young people and their families. On the service delivery side of the role, the In School Youth Worker will implement strategies and counselling to connect young people with their families, community and education networks, in ways that are developmentally appropriate and responsive to the needs of individual young people.
