Head Positive is a new social action programme for young people based in Coventry. With an emphasis on engaging underrepresented groups, including those living in the most deprived inner-city wards, the programme focuses on the theme of improving mental health and wellbeing. Although we would like to engage all young people in the programme, there is a particular focus on those who are either in care, or are newly arrived to the country.
The appointed Volunteer Coordinator will be responsible for the creation of volunteering opportunities, recruitment, training, and development of community based projects for young people aged 10 to 18.
Working directly with young people, you will be responsible for enabling them to learn transferable life-skills through training and participation in community-based volunteer roles. The role will include supervising and supporting volunteers in their roles including links to local, regional and national projects. Working in partnership with outside agencies will be a significant requirement in order to meet desired project outcomes.
