The Crosslinks XXcel Programme is a cross community youth arts program that seeks to establish a positive alternative youth environment for young people from East and West Belfast and the Polish, Syrian & BME Communities that generates social development. The Crosslinks Ethnic Integration Worker will prioritise contact to keep young people connected to the Crosslinks Programme and if possible act as a translator where required. The Crosslinks Minority Ethnic Worker works with staff and volunteers in the planning, preparing, organising, and running of the Crosslinks events and activities and in the ongoing informal education and mentoring work of the Project. The Crosslinks Ethnic Integration Worker will be responsible for the connection of BME young people (aged 14-20) to the Project. The Worker will do contact work with ethnic minority young people in the local community and through associated projects. They will also help recruit and build a volunteer leadership team and provide a safe growth environment for young people.
Housing Rights are now recruiting for the next phase of our BME Housing Champions project! They need 10 bilingual peer volunteers from a range of ethnic backgrounds including migrant and asylum-seeking groups. Closing date is Tuesday 19th June, more information available through this link: https://www.housingrights.org.uk/bme
