Frontier Youth Trust is a home for pioneering youth work. We believe that another world is possible.

We are a movement of pioneer youth workers and projects, calling others to take pioneering risks in their work with young people. Together, we are a growing movement of people who are pioneering with young people, advocating for positive change, speaking up for young people, challenging injustice and building church on the edge. We are recruiting 2 Regional Activists to join our team to help us nurture practice and care for youth workers around the UK.

Our dream is more youth work, and better youth work, for young people everywhere – especially those on the margins. Frontier Youth Trust  provides training and coaching for practitioners, and creates opportunities for sharing ideas, theological reflection, and highlighting inspiring practice. We are a home for pioneer youth workers; a place to belong, to be resourced, and renewed.

We are looking for people who have a gift and passion for supporting others in their youth work practice. The right person will have significant experience of youth work in a pioneering context and in facilitating theological reflection in others. Using their skill and creativity, the Regional Activists will provide support, training, advice, coaching to individuals, groups and organisations involved in pioneering youth work.  This will include a caseload of regular support for local projects, and hosting a regional training/support event three-times a year.
