Its up to you... you can come for one session, be part of a project for a short while or stay and be involved for a while longer.
New Trustee wanted
Beyond Earlston are looking for a new Treasurer to replace our existing treasurer who is leaving us after 5 years.
The role involves working closely with the manager to ensure the smooth financial running of the organisation. The present trustees come from a variety of backgrounds bringing skills and experiences to support the day to day running and strategic planning of the organisation. The trustees meet 4 times a year as a group with smaller working groups to take ideas forward.
Attached is a role descriptor laying out the main responsibilities of the treasurer role.
Beyond Earlston provides youth work opportunities for young people within the Earlston high school catchment area, where we provide a variety of indoor and outdoor activities for young people aged 11-25.
We do not have our own building or designated youth space. Instead we work from a variety of locations - community and village halls, community spaces at schools, and outdoor spaces on our doorstep. Our provision includes term-time, weekday youth clubs, holiday programmes and funded support services (including the Big Lottery funded Stepping Stones programme).
We run weekly youth clubs in three locations and a monthly roller disco in Lauder, all of which are popular and have around 20-30 young people attending each week. In collaboration with others we support a lunchtime drop in at school for S1/2 pupils who are finding the high school environment challenging. We work closely alongside other youth and community groups to open up further opportunities for young people and enhance our own service delivery.
