Launch Housing has an ambitious and singular mission to end homelessness. We aim to get people housed, keep them housed, and be an influential voice on ending homelessness. We are a secular, independent provider of choice for clients and the go-to organisation on homelessness for government, media, philanthropy, private donors and the community.
We have an exciting opportunity for a positive and energetic Youth Development Worker to drive our advantaged thinking practice approach at our Education First Youth Foyer in Glen Waverley.
The Victorian Education First Youth Foyers provide integrated learning and student accommodation in mainstream educational settings for young people aged 16-24 years, who are at risk of or experiencing homelessness.
Grounded in Open Talent and using an advantaged thinking approach, they are designed for young people who have the ambition and motivation to engage in education and training but have been unable to do so due to a range of structural, institutional and personal barriers.
You will have experience in working in youth programs and understanding of the challenges that face young people of this background. You will have an unwavering belief in young people, be an outstanding role model to fellow staff as well as the students living at the Education First Youth Foyer, and recognise that education is essential to breaking the cycle of homelessness.
Working in a dynamic, multi-disciplinary team that uses innovative education and housing practices, this exciting and challenging position offers applicants the opportunity to build and empower the lives of youth experiencing homelessness.
