Our diverse aims and objectives include:

  • To provide help and assistance in setting positive life goals and the support needed for the achievement of those goals.
  • To encourage positive interaction within the community and assist in reducing feelings of isolation and insecurity. 
  • To act as mediator between young adults and their families—where there is conflict and whenever possible—bring about a peaceful resolution. 
  • To assist candidates in building confidence, develop and maintain positive relationships with others in the community. 
  • To increase candidates better social connections and social contact within their community and society. 
  • To enable candidates to build on their feelings of positive self-worth through proactive mentoring and coaching support.

  • To identify opportunities for life skills improvement and help improve employment chances through encouraging candidates to participate in life skills training and job search related training. 
  • To encourage the capacity to cope with new experiences that will afford candidates chances for a new start in life.
