The Restorative Justice for All (RJ4All) International Institute is excited to announce an opening for a Consultancy position as a Project Officer for our "Footstep Forward - A Youth Resilience Project".

Footsteps Forward Project

The  Sports Team and Violent Reduction Unit of the Mayor of London are funding RJ4All to deliver a pilot project aimed at addressing youth violence by implementing our positive and holistic approach to support young people dealing with bereavement. The goal of the RJ4ALL Footsteps Forward project is to build the strengths, emotional agility and resilience of young people who are experiencing bereavement to overcome the challenges that they are experiencing.

The project is designed to cater to the needs of 10 young people in London aged between 14 and 18 who are faced with a loss. These situations may be triggered by youth violence or other factors.

The project unfolds over ten months, spanning from April 2024 to January 2025.

The key components are:

  • Weekly sports activities;
  • Therapeutic individual path;
  • Monthly group therapy sessions;
  • Engagement activities and well-being support;
  • Youth Club+ Building Resilience participation;
  • Individual pathway planning

However, marginalised groups, facing discrimination based on factors like age, race, gender, belief, socio-economic background, disability, or sexual orientation, often lack resources and a voice to challenge the powerful. RJ4All was founded to confront this challenge, empowering the voiceless and redistributing power for social justice. We pursue our vision by using the power of dialogue, education, sports and art, as well as the practices of restorative justice. 

The Role

The role is on a consultant basis, 2 days per week, £100-110/day rate (depending on experience).
