Mary’s Youth Club is offering exciting opportunities for three people aged 16-19 to become Co-Producer Partners. This brings the chance to earn £130-140 per month and to access accredited training. Request an application pack from firstname.lastname@example.org or 07816 073016, and make your application by 4 February at 6pm.
Mary’s Co-producer’s scheme employs five young people to participate in running and leading the Youth Club, allowing more activities to happen and also giving the co-producers a step-up on their own path to employment.
Each co-producer applies in a real appointment process, learning interview and self-presentation skills. The spots are often hotly contested.
“Co-producing gives me skills I’ll use again and again,” said Lucy, when asked about why she does it. Others, like Sarah, see the position as a way to get experience on the way to a specific application or career: ‘I want to be a clinical psychologist,” she said. “It’s hard to get experience working with young people, and this is a great way to start.”
