I am lucky enough to run Senior Sesions at Manchester Youth Zone and our members really keep me on my toes (which is a good thing as I am also responsible for MYZ’s sports projects!)
Working with our younger members across the Youth Zone is a privilege for me. I can see all the potential they have and love supporting their interests and passions.
MYZ ethos is so good we can’t keep it contained in one building! I am out and about working with our friends in other organisations to take our game-changing activities and support on the road for young people in the community.
We live in such an incredible city and the strong partnerships I manage with other charities and organisations in North Manchester shows how we all care about the next generation of Mancunians.
For young people to fulfil their full potential, they need good mental as well as physical health. My role is to support our members’ emotional wellbeing in the MYZ Safe Zone.
I ensure MYZ is a place where all our Junior and Senior Members can become the best they can be. When we work together, we become the best version of ourselves, and no one is left behind.
The work I am part of in the targeted projects for young people at Manchester Youth Zone and in the community makes a huge difference in their lives.
Come to The Factory Brew Café and say hi! I’m part of the facilities team that helps keep MYZ clean and safe.
Move over Alan Sugar! I help young people build their entrepreneurial skills in MYZ’s Careers and Enterprise Hub
Our Junior Members are so much fun. I get a real kick out of planning activities for them and managing other Youth Workers.
It is my job to secure our future by finding the funding and writing bids so the MYZ team can do even more, for and with our members.
My role is to bring MYZ to life and shout about all the incredible work that goes on in our big yellow building!
From fun group activities to 1:1 mentoring, I get to work with a whole range of fantastic young people aged 8-25.
Watching young people rise to the challenge of football, skateboarding, rock climbing, or mountain biking shows me – and them – they are capable of anything.
The young people who take part in my #ManchesterYouthCan and Learn2Lead Young Leaders social action and volunteering projects make me so proud to come to work
The safety of our young people is our top priority. Talk to me about our mentoring programme or any safeguarding concerns.
Not sure whether I have more fun supporting young people with additional needs on our Junior or Senior sessions -what I am sure off is every day at MYZ is a blast.
