We’re on the lookout for more passionate Youth Workers!
We’re looking for people with experience – but that doesn’t just mean you’re already a Youth Worker. We have part time and casual youth worker opportunities for those already in the workforce, looking for a change, recent graduates and those still studying.
Foundations Care exists to support children, young people and families through the ups and downs of life. This includes supporting and caring for young people in a homely and welcoming residential setting, where our talented pool of Youth Workers shine.
Youth Workers directly support the day to day routine of young people, ensuring they are safe and that their welfare and wellbeing needs are met, while working towards planned goals and independence. Our youth workers support young people with a range of developmental, behavioural, and psychological needs. Each day is different but includes coaching, mentoring, training and modelling to build their life skills, support positive decision making, access opportunities and achieve goals.
We want people from all kinds of backgrounds; what matters most to Foundations Care is that our Youth Workers are engaged, empathetic people with great attention to detail, open minds, and are quick to adapt and thrive in an active environment. People who can relate to young people on their level and role model appropriate behaviour are needed.
Foundations Care is especially interested to hear from people who may have experience in working in disability care and NDIS, providing Youth Work services, providing residential support, and those who have worked actively with children and the community such as teachers, foster carers, emergency service providers and human services workers.
