About this opportunity

We’re always looking for talented, caring people to join our dynamic volunteer team helping more people lead independent lives – you will be assisting in our Alternative Learning Program supporting young people, within a classroom, who have disengaged from mainstream schooling.

About Us:

SYC exists so everyone can succeed.

We invest back into the community, helping tens of thousands of people every year to create a life without disadvantage, to build sustainable independence and to experience wellbeing in all areas of their lives.

Our vision of wellbeing, independence and opportunity for everyone encompasses the people we work with, as well as the people who work for SYC.
