MENTORING

Future Leaders Youth

Mentoring services are offered to young people 12-25 who have experienced ACES (adverse childhood experiences). Young people will be supported in a range of areas to enhance their learning and development. 

Mentoring has the focus of goal setting and they are supported in their pathways to achieve goals. Within the programme young people will have the opportunity to resources such as books, courses, a range of tests that will show their personality, motivators’ and judgments. A PDP (Personal development plan) is created to give direction and focus to the young persons’ long-term goals. 

 

What makes our programme different? 

We understand the importance of long-term support. Our mentoring is a 6 months to a year programme to allow relationships to be established and maintained for long-term development. 

 

Research shows short term mentoring can have a devastating impact on young people. Relationships with mentors that last less than three months; where there is irregular and inconsistent contact; where there is a disconnect between the personalities, interests, and expectations of the mentors and mentees; where mentors are unprepared and lack skills to relate to youth; and where there is no emotional bond between the mentor and mentee have been found to be harmful to the youths (Jekielek et al., 2002; Rhodes & DuBois, 2006).
