About Woodrow High House, London Youth

About Woodrow High House
Located in the Chilterns, Woodrow High House is a 26-acre site made up of a Grade II listed manor house dating back to the mid-1600s, boasting a 120-bed Outdoor Learning Centre and Leisure Centre complete with swimming pool, sports hall, 3G astroturf pitch and mountain bike track. London Youth has owned and operated Woodrow since 1945, delivering memorable experiences for over 8,000 children and young people each year. The sports facilities are used by house guests and the local community. The pool is used by private hire local community groups, house guests, and hundreds of children who attend our swim school each week.

About London Youth
We are London Youth. A charity on a mission to improve the lives of young people in London. Our vision is that all young Londoners grow up healthy, able to express themselves, navigate a fulfilling career and make a positive contribution in their communities. Our mission is to support and challenge young people to become the best they can be developing their confidence, resilience and relationship skills. We do this with, and through, our network of community youth organisations, delivering sports, arts, employability, youth action programmes, and at our two Outdoor Learning Centres. 

The Woodrow Team

The Outdoor Instructor works at the heart of the Woodrow High House Operations team, supporting our guests to enjoy first-class, memorable Outdoor Learning, Leisure & Residential Centre experiences. You will also work across teams to support wider centre operational objectives, including facilities, marketing, and so on. There is regular collaboration with the wider London Youth team, including with our sister outdoor centre Hindleap Warren.

Our commitment to anti-racism 
In July 2020, we issued a statement committing to become an anti-racist organisation and to actively tackle racism. Since then, London Youth has worked with our staff and trustees to understand first the issues within our organisation, collaboratively developing a Theory of Change to define our areas of focus, approach and plan of action moving forward. 
We have a Race Equality Action Stakeholder Group which is chaired by a London Youth member and trustee. This group includes representatives from across the organisation and oversees the implementation of our Race Equality Action Plan. 
At the heart of youth work is the drive to level the playing field for all young Londoners to succeed, regardless of their backgrounds. Over two thirds of the young people we work with are from racialised communities and we know that without the opportunities which youth organisations provide, there would be limited experiences open to them. 

London Youth embraces equality, diversity and inclusion. We are committed to the ongoing development of an organisation that values and represents a variety of backgrounds, perspectives and skills and welcome applications that reflect this.
