Large Group Sessions:

Preventative, educational workshops around self-esteem and healthy relationships, to whole classes or larger groups. These can be delivered in schools during curriculum time, as well as extra-curricular sessions in both schools and other youth settings, such as youth groups. The sessions can be tailored to meet the different needs of the young people and are designed to be informal and interactive, with the facilitator encouraging young people to explore the topics themselves.

  • There was a good pace to the lesson. The children were interested and engaged and there was a nice balance of activities so that the children were always busy and engaged

SMALL GROUP WORKSHOPS:

Series of targeted sessions with small groups of 6-10 young people that have been identified as particularly struggling in the areas of self-esteem and/or building healthy relationships. Usually, the 1-hour workshop sessions take place over six consecutive weeks, but these can be slightly longer or shorter depending on the needs of the young people agreed with the school or establishment. The project worker will meet with a member of staff beforehand to discuss the needs of the young people and tailor the sessions accordingly. The project worker will also meet with each young person individually before the workshops begin to prepare them.

  • The facilitator made all the girls feel important and that they had great qualities, with a good future ahead of them
    — Primary School Teacher, Small Group
  • When someone was being mean to me I had a choice to either tell them to shut up and I would be in trouble or I could choose a different way, which I did. I used TAC (a technique learned in the sessions).

ONE TO ONE MENTORING:

This year we launched the pilot of our mentoring programme, providing positive adult role models for young people to walk alongside them and provide a listening ear. Mentors meet with their assigned young person once every 2 weeks and work with them to help achieve their goals, overcome obstacles they may be facing, and feel confident in themselves. Mentors will signpost young people to other agencies for more specialist support where necessary. The mentoring programme is currently being piloted with the church youth group with the aim of launching in the community in the next year. 
 

 
  • Mentoring has helped my confidence and views of myself. I get that I can’t change other people’s views of me, but now I don’t let it affect how I feel about myself

  • I don’t think I’m a failure anymore
