Peer Role Models and Mentors
In Street Work we know who our participants are AND we know their names. We begin mentoring young people from the moment they enter the programme. In addition we find that participants who have been involved for a while begin to mentor new participants. We would like to formalise Peer Role models because where leaders emerge from a group of people with similar experiences then their success seems more tangible and realisable for those around them.
As a community based organisation we are extremely passionate about the work we deliver to young people and their communities. Street Work is confident that with the correct support and guidance, many young people will directly benefit from the Sporting Chance project. Not least of all, providing them with an opportunity to develop and reach their full potential in their chosen field of interest.
