Facilitators - Wonderful facilitators needed to support young people to thrive through fun workplace programs
ABCN Mainly Sydney CBD
ABCN is a non-profit network of 40 leading companies and 200 socio-economically disadvantaged public schools. Our mission is for business to inspire students to exceed what they think is possible. We do this through structured workplace mentoring workshops and experiences where students work with corporate volunteers to build the skills, mindsets and connections for them to thrive in the future. In 2018 we worked with over 6,500 students and 5,000 corporate volunteers around Australia. We achieve great outcomes both in terms of our students completing year 12, and also in terms of the positive impact on the mentors. This video gives you a good sense of what our programs are like https://vimeo.com/255662434 We are looking for experienced facilitators to act as contract facilitators for our programs. The programs take place in the offices of our corporate partners, which are mainly in the Sydney CBD or in Macquarie Park. Some program launches also take place at our schools in Western Sydney/ South-Western Sydney. The programs take place normally around lunchtime and always within school hours and during term time. There are around 15-20 students in years 8 to 11 at school and 8-15 mentors in each session. The programs are high energy and really joyful. We are looking for confident, clear facilitators who can work with young people as well as corporate audiences. High energy, a sense of humour and openness to share a bit of yourself are really important as the programs are really about supporting young people to recognise the range of opportunities that are available to them, and to build their confidence and engagement. We guarantee you will feel great after seeing the wonderful change in the students. Our programs have very clear step-by-step facilitation guides. The hourly rate is $50 per hour, with 1 hour setup/packup time, and 1/2 hour prep per session.
