We welcome young people from any walk of life to participate in StreetReach 2020.

We particularly welcome team applications from groups already formed and come with their own leaders for example – a youth club project group, a church youth group, a community youth program etc. 

If you are not part of a group but would like to take part or lead a team, then you are welcome to sign up and be allocated a team. 

Training will be held in 2020 for everyone who signs up to be in a team.

This person will be from the Host Group and be the point of contact for the Host Group. They will be on the ground daily to work alongside the StreetReach Team and the Host Group and the Local Coordinator. 
 

Their role includes:

  • Planning and preparing the project and liaise with the StreetReach Coordinator

Training and support will be delivered for Host Groups and Local Teams. It is important to plan your project according to your own group needs and capacity. Ultimately we are keen to see the values of love and compassion in action and local collaboration throughout all our efforts.

This is the team on the ground, working directly under the Team Leader and also paying attention to the direction from the Local Coordinator and Host Group Leader. The team will work in pairs at all times to ensure safety and accountability and this will be in a buddy system format. It will be hard work and will require a sense of fun and willingness to participate, communication skills and the ability to play will also be really useful!
