As SENTRAL Youth Services Coordinator you will plan and coordinate the activities and administration of the SENTRAL Youth Services. You will identify and assess the recreational, vocational, educational, health and social needs of young people in the Kiama Local Government area and develop and deliver programs that address these needs.
Temporary full time, 35 hours per week until 17 February 2023
Salary from $1,467.00 to $1,565.30 per week (depending on qualifications, skills and experience)
This leading role will be charged with the end-to-end development of Penrith’s flagship arts, culture and lifestyle festival, REAL Festival (as well as delivering a freshly reviewed major and community events program).
Returning in 2023 from a 3-year hiatus and with a newly upgraded event site, this role presents an exciting opportunity for an experienced events producer to mark a real and lasting mark in Western Sydney.
We welcome youth looking for casual work. We welcome new migrants and refugee communities. We welcome Australian or overseas born members of the community. We welcome those currently studying English. We welcome ALL members of the community to apply or to reach out to us if they are interested.
While Greater Sydney is where we predominately recruit, we are also open for applications from across NSW as we are looking to support beach safety sessions across the state.
Applications can happen online via our hub as linked to the flyers.
With our South Coast communities experiencing many adversities – such as fires, floods, and Covid-19 – in recent times, now more than ever people are requiring emotional comfort and support, as well as practical advice and assistance, in the face of these critical events.
Although most people experience distress following a disaster or critical incident, the majority will recover using existing coping strategies and social supports. As such, formal intervention in the immediate aftermath is generally not recommended. Rather PFA is internationally endorsed as the appropriate initial response. Underpinned by a person-centred and trauma-informed approach, the PFA workshop supports participants to:
develop skills in communicating with, and reducing the initial distress of, people affected by a critical event
support people to rebuild a sense of control and empowerment in the face of disaster, and utilise their own strengths and abilities to identify and address their own immediate needs
foster short-term adaptive functioning and build resilience
minimise the risk of further harm
identify those in need of further support
consider the importance of self-care when supporting others.
This workshop is interactive, encouraging participants to ask questions and engage in learning activities as well as share personal experiences and self-reflections. Attendees will receive a certificate of attendance, contributing to continual professional development.
Please circulate this training opportunity within your organisations and wider networks – supporting those impacted by a critical event requires a whole-community effort, so the more people we can engage with and offer this training to the better connected, resilient, and resourceful our South Coast communities will be in the face of adversity.
