About youth work

Services for Young People is the primary provider of youth work in Hertfordshire. As a youth worker you would deliver planned curriculum programmes to achieve set outcomes for young people through groupwork and one-to-one support.

Could you help us to support young people with subjects such as:

  • Emotional and mental wellbeing
  • Building confidence, self-esteem, resilience and independent living skills
  • Recognising and developing safe and healthy relationships and looking after their sexual health
  • Smoking, substance and/or alcohol misuse
  • Understanding the risks of involvement violence, gangs, crime or antisocial behaviour

You would be giving young people support at an early stage before issues are seriously affecting their daily life, health, development or safety.
