Youth Connect South West (YCSW) is an independent non-profit charity supporting young people in Bath and North East Somerset and beyond.
YCSW provide both universal and targeted opportunities for young people aged 11 - 25. They offer a range of support including youth work, 1-1 targeted support, alternative education, careers advice and guidance. They operate from various localities and have their own youth hub - Southside.
BSU's partnership with YCSW aims to benefit both BSU students and the communities that Youth Connect support. A key part of this is a funded Community Events Co-ordinator placement at YCSW for a BSU student. Working from the Southside Youth Hub this role will bring resources of both BSU and YCSW together for the benefit of the community.
YCSW are also supporting and/or have space to support other students to get involved with professional Youth and Community work either through year long placements or small learning opportunities.
