Job Title: Programmes Director
Working For: The Advocacy Academy
Salary: £35,000 - £40,000
The Advocacy Academy is a South London youth movement working to unleash the power of young people to create a more fair, just, and equal society. We are on a mission to create a new generation of social-change leaders, supporting them to tackle the biggest challenges of the 21st Century - from breaking gender binaries to decolonising the school curriculum to ending violence on our streets. We envision a society in which young people are passionate and powerful, meaningfully participating in their communities and effectively challenging injustice and inequality to create a better tomorrow.
Our flagship programme, the Social Justice Leadership Fellowship, is an immersive six-month crash-course in activism. Made up of three residential retreats and weekly evening gatherings, this 350-hour Fellowship is delivered by an outstanding faculty of 250 expert change-makers and, we hope, by you.
We're looking for one exceptional Programmes Director, and a team of activist youth-workers, who are fired-up by the idea of transforming the lives of young people and building a grassroots, values-driven social justice youth movement.
