icon YPP Steering Group Role Description

The CLA Young Person’s Project has been set up specifically to enable us to give young care leavers the necessary advice and skills to get on in life. We also hope to influence public policy debate concerning the needs of this group.

We are looking for a team of dedicated and enthusiastic individuals who want the opportunity to use their skills and experience to inform and guide the delivery of our National Young Person’s Project. This is an exciting opportunity for individuals looking to gain new skills, meet new people and feed in to national policy and practice.  There could be the option to specialise in an area that members have a keen interest, such as Education, Emotional Wellbeing or Criminal Justice matters.

Meetings will be quarterly and will initially take place in Manchester with the first being in May 2011. The commitment of time will be 4 hours per month and the majority of the work in between meetings will take place remotely with online social networking forums being utilised.

Please see the role description for more details. Applicants should write a short summary of why they are interested in the role (no more than 150 words) and send to the email address below. The deadline for applications is Monday April 18th 2011 at 5pm, all interviews will be carried out over the telephone.
