Youth Ambassador, Part-time/Sessional (Click to show below) (Click to hide below)

Employer: Grand Pacific Health

One in three young Australians 12-25 years old report experiencing high or very high levels of psychological distress, yet only one in ten young Australians knows how and where to access help for their mental health. Research also tells us that young people learn most successfully from one another—that knowledge about health is best received by young people when delivered to them by other young people. 

headspace Wollongong’s Youth Ambassador Program is a peer-led advocacy program that supports young people to assist other young people in identifying experiences of mental ill-health, and accessing tools for seeking help.

About the Role

The Youth Ambassadors Program (YAP) is a peer education program, designed to work with youth volunteers to engage school aged young people in programs around mental health.

Youth Ambassadors will work as a team, with support from the Community Engagement Officer, to deliver outreach mental health education to school groups.

Individuals selected for this role will deliver presentations and workshops that increase the mental health literacy of high school students, and improve students’ ability to seek help when experiencing mental health challenges.

Youth Ambassadors will receive training in youth mental health first aid, public speaking, group facilitation and other topics as nominated by the group. Youth Ambassadors will also receive monthly group supervision.

 

What are we looking for?

We are seeking four skilled volunteers who:

-          Are aged between 18-25 when the program commences in January 2019

-          Have a strong passion for, and high literacy around, mental health, mental health variation, and mental ill-health

-          Have lived, professional or volunteer experience with mental health variation and/or mental ill-health

-          Have strong public speaking, presentation or group facilitation skills

-          Can work effectively in a team or independently

-          Have availability to deliver presentations in high schools during school hours in 2019

-          Can commit to one-year tenure as a Youth Ambassador at headspace Wollongong.

headspace Wollongong aims to recruit Youth Ambassadors whose experiences reflect the diversity of the community they will be serving. As such, we invite and deeply welcome applications from individuals who identify as Aboriginal, Culturally and Linguistically Diverse, sex, sexuality and gender diverse, or who live with a disability.

 

Responsibilities:

Youth Ambassadors will be required to attend our pre-program training, including Youth Mental Health First Aid (YMHFA), public speaking training, group facilitation training, and headspace Wollongong’s Approach to Mental Health training.

Youth Ambassadors will then be required to travel to schools and youth services in the Illawarra region to deliver set presentations and workshops within the school. Youth Ambassadors will observe a presentation or workshop, then deliver a presentation under staff supervision, and eventually move towards delivering presentations or workshops without supervision.

Youth Ambassadors will be required to participate in monthly group supervision sessions, as well as post-delivery debriefs, facilitated by the Community Engagement Officer.

 

Benefits

Youth ambassadors will receive:

-          The opportunity to challenge stigma around mental health variations and mental ill-health in the lives of young people

-          Valuable training opportunities

-          Experience working with young people around mental health and mental ill-health

-          Opportunities for networking and meeting like-minded young people

 

Training

Youth Ambassadors will receive the following training:

-          Youth Mental Health First Aid (YMHFA)

-          Public speaking and group facilitation training

-          Training around headspace Wollongong’s mission, values and approach to mental health

 

Time Commitment

We anticipate that the Youth Ambassador Program will require approximately two hours per week of volunteers’ time.
