We are a non-profit organisation established over 15 years ago to fill a desperate need in the community. The charity opens doors to opportunities, positive relationships and community connections for youth at risk aged between 10 to 25 years old, with practical support such as mentoring programs, education and employment. The young people we work with are among the most disadvantaged members of our community who often come from extremely abusive families, including sexual, drug or alcohol abuse. We help young people find the courage to seek a better future and aims to break the cycle of substance abuse, criminal activity and incarceration by providing young people at risk with opportunities to make links and build relationships with the community with education and employment opportunities. Past research shows that over 90% of young people involved in mentoring programs do not reoffend.
