The Archbishop of York Youth Trust invites suitable applications for this vital new role.
A key element of our work is a schools’ based character education programme, the Young Leaders Award (YLA), which runs in a broad range of schools and empowers young people aged 5-18 to ‘be the change they want to see’ in their lives and local communities. Since the Youth Trust’s inception in 2008 over 80,000 students in over 630 primary and secondary schools have participated in the YLA. Initially working in the Northern Province of the Church of England, we are currently expanding into the Southern Province, making this an exciting time for the right person to join our small team currently based in Bishopthorpe, York.

If you have a keen eye for detail, a professional approach and want to see young people flourish, we’d like to hear from you. For further details and an application pack please visit
