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.
