Mentoring Services – Transitional & Educational
Assisting youth to discover their potential
Is to help “At Risk” young people turn around their lives and reach their true potential
To be “The fence at the top of the cliff that will stop the young people from falling off and needing an ambulance at the bottom”
We run programs that are designed for young people who have become damaged through life circumstances.
Aim: To re-engage enrolled at risk students into attending education fulltime
Aim: Assisting excluded or long-term truant students to re-integrate back into education

It gives the school peace of mind to know that their high at-risk students:
School able to pass on to teachers that their past students have settled into high school
The high schools will have set up support to meet the individual needs prior to the student starting
The students become confident that they can settle into the new school
It takes what could be a stressful situation and turns it around to become a positive experience of learning and growth
“The organisation has displayed an outstanding level of professionalism to date, and has evidence of outstanding success in re engaging students in education and supporting them through transition. Communication between the organisation and the school has been outstanding and systems reflect a high level of accountability for effective practice.” KD WI
“Being responsible for the pastoral care of students this service has allowed the school to ensure that students who have presented throughout the year with having difficulties are not left feeling that the transition to college is too 'big' for them or families have been left on their own and all ties to their previous school are now cut.” S.S GM
“The outcomes of six students at risk of educational failure, referred to Sue via Strengthening Families in 2011 has defied and exceeded all expectations. NFT’s contribution and their direct involvement with these children were instrumental in the positive outcomes that were achieved. These outcomes include increased attendance at school, gains in positive self esteem, heightened respect for peers and educators and improved educational competency. They were also able to breach the gap between home and school so the students’ families were included in the learning process and school life.” TH SF
