About the GOAL Project (Getting On And Living)

 

TLC is supporting a new peer mentoring initiative in Calderdale. The GOAL project is a Care Leaver peer led programme that uses a Youth Advocacy model to transfer knowledge and skills to help the transition from care to independent living.

The mentors carry out a residential training course with the young people on the practicalities of living independently for the first time. Having completed the course, the young people can choose to be trained themselves as mentors. In this way, the project becomes sustainable and is constantly enriched by the experience of recent care leavers.

GOAL is a partnership involving Prospects, Care Leaver Association, Calderdale Council and TLC. An evaluation will report on the first year of operation at the end of 2016.

 

 

 Mentoring At Trinity Academy School

 

The Trinity Mentoring project has had very favourable feedback from the Academy, mentors and mentees. Our partner, Yorkshire Mentoring, has refined the training, matching and support sessions and a new lead member of staff at Trinity has helped with communication and reporting. Careful use of resources has resulted in us being able to extend the mentoring to Easter 2017 without further funding. Using these developments and outcomes we are now in a position to approach other schools about introducing similar mentoring schemes.
