Within our society many young people are not attending school, college or employment due to complex reasons including mental health. This is resulting in some young people not receiving the support they need to succeed in life. NEETs development coaching offers a different approach to engaging and communicating with young people who are finding life difficult that feel they have no one to turn to. NEETS development coaching deliver programs that help to build positive relationships using outdoor activities and experiences to help accelerate the connection and trust, allowing the young person to ask for advice or guidance from someone they respect. We have seen some outstanding results with some of the young people we have worked with in such a short amount of time.
The areas we look at developing during or programs are:
- Frustration tolerance
- Social skills
- Life plans
- Education / career options
I have received many inquires from parents, care workers, social workers, teachers and youth workers asking if I can work with a young person that is struggling with life but, is not within the system / frame work to get funding or nothing as worked and has been told to try NEETs development coaching programs. This is heart-wrenching knowing that If I had the funding I could offer any young person the support they need to help them overcome the barriers preventing them in succeeding.
