We’re hiring! Become a Youth Storytelling Coordinator

We are seeking a passionate and experienced Youth Storytelling Program Coordinator to join our team.

March 9, 2023

Centre for Stories is seeking a part-time Youth Storytelling Program Coordinator (YSPC) to join our team.

The YSPC will plan and manage delivery of Centre for Stories’ signature oral storytelling youth program Word Up and support the development of a parallel writing program.  This project is funded by the Department of Local Government Sports and Culture (DLGSC). The YSPC is a part-time role for 2.5 days per week for two years.

Centre for Stories believes that storytelling has the ability to empower young people to be the best versions of themselves through both oral and writing programs. The oral story component of this program has been designed and tested in schools and this funding enables us to continue delivering it to schools.  The lesson plans are aligned with the Australian National Curriculum priorities. We work primarily with young people aged 12-18 from under-resourced communities and culturally and linguistically diverse (CaLD) backgrounds.
