SWAY is run by a group of Trustees who employ staff to carry out the objectives of SWAY.
Youth Leader – Samantha Scott
As a mother of two grown-up children and a grandmother to three grandchildren – having hands on experience of raising children in today’s society. I have always had a desire to work with children and young people and this was initially lived out through my voluntary roles of running a youth club and helping out in my children’s schools even being a parent Governor. It was only in 2010 that I decided to dedicate my time to working with children and young people and I returned to education as a mature learner and achieved the qualification of a BA Honours Degree in Youth Work & Ministry (JNC recognised)
As the Youth Leader of SWAY, my duties are varied and consist of organising and running various activities such as Holiday and Youth Clubs, developing work within schools such as mentoring and running workshops and lunch clubs. I also developed SWAY’s Outreach work in the local community, assist in recruiting staff and writing grant proposals. I see my work with young people as a calling and not just a job.
Having over 20 years’ experience of working in Local Government which includes over 15 years of Managing Watford Indoor Market and Charter Place Shopping Centre. I also have over 15 years’ experience of working with young people in a voluntary capacity. I have had various roles throughout my career from being a manager, court logger, admin assistant, School Health Clerk.
