Didcot TRAIN Youth Project

One to One Mentoring

TRAIN delivers mentoring schemes that are tailored to support young people within the Didcot area aged 11 – 18 in need of weekly support, for a set period of time. Our programme empowers young people to make better life choices, promotes better self-esteem and encourages them to reach their full potential. The young people are referred to TRAIN by a number of different agencies, including local schools, social services and/or other local partners. 

Our 1:1 mentoring sessions are typically held weekly for an hour at a time, over a 6 week period. TRAIN works with each young person to address any issues or concerns throughout the programme, individually tailoring sessions based on their specific needs. These are ascertained through conversations with the school, parent/guardian and the young person, ranging from emotional or behavioural difficulties to persistent non-school attendance, family problems and temporary exclusions.

Examples of specific focuses of programmes may include:

- Acting as an early intervention strategy to support vulnerable young people at risk of or involved in crime and/or Anti-Social Behaviour.

- Building a young person’s confidence and self-esteem to empower them to protect themselves from sexual exploitation.
