Youth Cultivator: Junior After Schools Club (5 – 8 years) @ Solas Project 7 Month Maternity Cover
Starts March 2020

Background & Job Context:

The Youth Cultivator will work within the spirit of Solas Project, the vision of which is an Ireland where all children and young people truly know their self-worth and can take full advantage of their potential. We are achieving this through providing a range of innovative interventions that equip and empower young people to reach their full potential, live life to the full and participate fully in society. Through programmes of learning, mentoring, personal and social development we support young people to create a brighter future for themselves and their communities.

Our After School Programme has been running since 2007, and was born out of a desire to provide a safe, encouraging home-like environment after school for children living in challenging circumstances. In 2012 we launched our Junior Club (5 – 8 year olds) as a response for the need for earlier intervention. The Club runs from Monday to Thursday 1.30pm to 6:15pm. Each day there are three main components: a warm nutritious meal, assisting children with their homework and a constructive, fun activity. Through all its activities the programme strives to build up each child’s self-worth and confidence, and to help each child discover his or her gifts and abilities.

We invite appropriately qualified individuals to apply who are committed to the healthy development of young people, have a creative approach to working with our target group and are enthusiastic about leading within a demanding youth work environment. Please read the attached job description carefully to apply please send a CV and cover letter to:

Amy Carey, Solas Project, Unit 1 Liberty View, Longs Place, Dublin 8 or email by Monday 27th January at 5pm.
