Provides training and support to members of the community who are willing to act as mentors to school students.
One of the greatest chances for a young person fulfilling their potential is to take advantage of educational opportunities offered in school.
There is a high price to be paid for the fact that a number of young people in our society are not taking advantage of the educational opportunities offered in a school setting.
Optimal educational outcomes for young people are based on their wellbeing and sense of connection with the school and community to which they belong.
One of the most protective factors for a young person is the support and encouragement afforded by a one-to-one relationship with a caring adult.
The responsibility for the wellbeing of young people lies with the whole community not just schools.
There is a latent goodwill in the community which can be tapped and realised to support schools to achieve the outcomes for which they are established.
