What we're looking for:
We are looking for a leader who is passionate about youth and is able to lead our Sr. Youth Ministry for youth ages 16-24 in the Peterborough area. This role includes the ability to plan, implement and supervise programs, including but not limited to, The Bridge Youth Drop-in Centre, as well as lead community outreach initiatives.

You will serve in a middle management position reporting to the Peterborough Satellite Director and supervise a team of staff, interns and volunteers.

Personality:
For the role of Sr. Youth Program Coordinator we are looking for a ‘seasoned’ youth worker with experience in leadership.

We are looking for someone who is comfortable and able to meet with youth in a creative, non-barrier way, as well as adhere to excellence in the areas of organization, administration and staff management. Speaking and teaching ability is an asset. If you can span this wide range of traits, then please consider us.

Faith:
While we recognize that there are many youth workers who do not share the Christian faith, yet do excellent work in our community, we are looking for applicants who adhere to the Christian faith. We believe that Christ offers more than mere values; He offers a divine influence in a person's life leading to internal change. We hope to invite young people to explore how this change can manifest in their personal lives.
