Programmes supporting young people


Every young person deserves the best possible start in life, and when there is a lack of focus or direction it becomes difficult to achieve real potential. Youth programmes like youth mentoring and enrichment programmes can deliver crucial support, encouragement and guidance to young people needing that extra help.

Mentoring programmes where the young person gets direct interaction with a mentor on a 1:1 basis are proven to generate the best results with trust-based relationships. Group sessions help achieve trust in the mentoring relationship, but also encourage greater confidence.

Our innovative youth programmes are run where each session will aim to achieve an understanding of the needs of each young person and explore positive interests that will engage them and provide them with a new focus.

Our programmes explore and develop coping skills and build resilience which will not only improve quality of life but also establish a positive mindset that will enhance confidence and future opportunities to achieve potential.

Youth Mentoring Case Study

Carl is a 14yr old young person who was referred to the mentoring programme by his pastoral support because his poor behaviour had resulted in a few exclusions from school. He lacked focus, was not fully engaging with the educational system and displayed a very negative attitude.

The Breakout programme is an Action4Youth initiative for young people who are on the cusp of exclusion from school or may already be in a Pupil Referral Unit or have been identified as engaging in anti social behaviour. Breakout is an opportunity for students to participate in a five week programme that focuses on key areas such as self confidence, leadership and positive decision making through a targeted programme of outdoor adventurous activities and classroom sessions.

Students will learn about the impact of knife and gang related crime and achieve a number of accreditations along the way.

We provide counselling in a safe and confidential environment at The Junction in High Wycombe. Young people will find someone to talk to who listens, cares, gives emotional support and empowers them to find a solution.

You don’t need to book in advance, just pop in to speak to one of our team members about counselling and they will be able to give you the information you need.

Counselling at The Junction is a free service. Our sessions last for 50 minutes, once a week. Most people come to counselling for several sessions over a few weeks, but everyone is different. 

If you would like further information or would like to speak to us beforehand, please contact us: [email protected] t. 07767 161 098

Thank you for facilitating the 5 week programme for our pupils at Blueprint. This was highly beneficial to our pupil cohort with outcomes linked to behaviour and improvements in attendance during this time. Within a PRU setting it hard to get the ‘disengaged’ pupil re-engaged positively with education, your service was a conduit to make this happen – thank you and your team. Again I would like to thank your team, proactive, professional, engaging and going over and above to make this experience worthwhile for our pupil cohort
