SNYE are now advertising for an Administrator to join our new team. Please go to the Job Vacancies page for details.
SNYE are pleased to welcome two new members of staff who join the youth charity as their Youth Engagement Coordinator and Youth Worker. Both start work during a period of lockdown but the youth sector is still active, with youth workers granted key worker status. They are keen to connect with youth leaders, activity providers and others trying to support young people in such challenging times.
SNYE have secured 2 year funding from South Northants Council, Towcester Town Council and Brackley Town Council to support our delivery of youth work and projects for local young people. These grants will allow us to employ 3 key people for the charity: a Youth Engagement Coordinator, Youth Worker and Administrator.
South Northants Youth Engagement (SNYE) achieve charitable status
My team recently met with Iain Anderson, the Youth Development Manager for the Northamptonshire Association of Youth Clubs with responsibility for South Northants.
Iain and his team are working on a day-to-day basis with local schools, councils and other governing bodies to provide the best service possible for young people in our area. NAYC provides an impressive range of services for young people which they deliver through youth clubs, schools and church organisations.
The future vision of NAYC is to have dedicated youth Hubs in both Towcester and Brackley which will provide:
Sports and numerous activities
Adventures and days out
Youth cafes with different themed events
This is an exciting development as previous youth projects had to be closed through lack of funds. NAYC is working to establish a new charity known as South Northants Youth Engagement; they will be applying for charitable funding with trustees including councillors from the two towns.
The registration of the South Northants Youth Engagement will be completed towards the end of September and celebrated with an official launch in October.
A number of our larger villages have established Youth Clubs and Iain is enthusiastic about getting more Youth Clubs up and running especially in smaller villages. Litchborough is setting up a new Youth Club and they have been lucky enough to secure finding from South Northants Council for a Youth Leader to attend once a week to run the session.
Iain is looking for volunteers who are interested in becoming Leaders and setting up Youth Clubs in some of the smaller villages. If you are interested in becoming a Volunteer Leader please contact Iain on 01604 499699 or Iainanderson@nayc.org
Youth clubs play a vital part in the lives of youths between 8 and 19, and I wish Iain and his team every success and offer out support in any way that I can
