Our Boys Mentoring
“The Workshop" is our 10 week group mentoring programme designed for 14–17 year old male offenders referred to Genesis Youth Trust.
Each week participants meet for a two hour session discussing and presenting ideas on various topics including: Gifts and Talents, Goal Setting, Role Models and Leadership. The programme was designed using the three R's of Transformation - Refuge, Restoration, Release. All sessions are activity based and the aim of the programme includes: personal development including identity and culture, crime prevention, education and transition into employment. Young people desire to connect and "The Workshop" allows this as the participants journey towards a brighter future.
“Research has shown that young mentees are less likely to become involved in criminal activity, drug and alcohol abuse or to leave school early… compared to their peers who are not mentored." (Tierney and Grossman)
