Youth Education and Training

Alternate learning options, mentoring and adventures for young people along with job support for families.

Duke of Edinburgh

We all know life can be tough and giving young people the key skills they need to cope with the ‘ups and downs’ is what the Duke of Edinburgh program is all about.

 

Call (08) 8209 5000.

 

As a young person in this six month community program, you will be challenged to learn a new skill, engage in your community, participate in physical fitness and go on an adventurous journey.

 

These different areas combine to help you learn about overcoming challenges, making a real difference in your community and taking responsibility for your choices.

 

So if you are looking for a way to build resilience, go on new adventures and make new friends, the Duke of Edinburgh could be perfect for you.

 

As an added bonus, all levels of the Duke of Edinburgh are fully accredited and earn you SACE points.

Flexible Learning Options

Student life doesn’t always go to plan and sometimes you might need some Flexible Learning Options.

Call (08) 8209 5000

 

If you are a young person on a Flexible Learning Options Enrolment , we can help you with a one on one learning plan working towards SACE or another learning pathway. We’ll also help work through the barriers which may be hindering your progress.

 

We also have Introductory Programs that are designed to support students who have disengaged from mainstream high school. We provide additional flexible learning options with a variety of choices for individual development.

 

For additional support we can also meet with young people in a community learning environment. Our experienced staff can run engagement programs that focus on 3 key elements – wellbeing, learning and transition.

Student Mentoring

The schooling experience and all that goes with it can be a hard place for some young people. A little extra encouragement can make all the difference.

 

Our Student Mentoring program is aimed at school-based students who need some support to remain engaged at school. Support includes help with tutoring or building meaningful relationships and negotiating life as a young person.

Youth Mentoring

Having a mentor in life is something we can all benefit from and it’s no different for children and young people. Our Youth Mentoring program aims to enrich the lives of young people by helping them develop positive relationships and connections in their community. It helps with their social life, their emotional wellbeing and their cultural identity. Call (08) 8273 7100.

 

The young people in our Youth Mentoring Program are aged between 10-17 years and are under the Guardianship of the Minister. However, it is not solely for those using Baptist Care SA services. It is available state-wide to young people from a variety of services and accommodation types including: out of home care, kinship placements, therapeutic foster care placements and other emergency care services.

 

It works like this: as a young person, you get a personal mentor.  Together, you determine your needs, goals and desired outcomes. You are involved from the referral stage all the way to the planning of the mentoring service to ensure your views, skills and interests are considered.

 

We are a provider for the DECD Care Mentoring program and as such, we work in close collaboration with their team and your social worker to provide a positive mentoring service.

 

Referrals for our Youth Mentoring program can be made by your social worker to the DECD mentor team.

 

Our DECD Youth Mentoring brochure provides more information, or you can contact us on 8273 7100 or email careservices-mentoring@baptistcaresa.org.au
