Teens

Our Values

Equality, diversity and interdependence

We support and strengthen young people’s belief in themselves, and their capacity to grow and to change through a supportive environment.

Mentoring and Befriending Programmes

We offer personalised one-to-one and group support to help improve specific areas of personal development. Our high-impact mentoring and befriending programmes are delivered by trained volunteers and mentors who provide structured support that helps to guide young people through their unique challenges. Our structured programmes are designed to support young people who are considered to be at risk of offending, socially excluded or in need of behavioural health support.
Mentoring helps young people to be:
  • Less likely to be involved in offending behaviour and criminal activities.
  • Less likely to be involved in drug, alcohol and substance misuse.
  • Less likely to be excluded from school.
  • Have healthy relationships.
  • Have better physical and mental health.
  • More likely to engage in and maintain their participation in education, training and employment.
  • More likely to experience better academic outcomes.
  • More likely to improve leadership skills.
  • Have a better understanding of their faith and cultural identity.
  • Engage in and maintain their participation in education, training and employment.
  • Better sense of self-worth, self-esteem, self-efficacy and resilience.
