Youth Service is a new approach to working with young people aged 16 – 18 years.
Youth Service offers guidance, encouragement and practical support to help young people find an education plan, training or work based learning that will best work for them.
The aim of this service is to encourage, assist and coach young people to overcome the barriers that could be preventing them achieving NCEA levels 1 2 & 3, enrolling in training courses or securing employment.

Caitlin is our Mentoring Project Manager. Coast Mentoring is a collaborative project between CYC Trust + Youth in Transition. Our youth mentoring programme is for young people between the ages of 10-24 years. We have a team of volunteer mentors who are matched with a young person and journey alongside them for the period of 12 months. Over this time the mentor meets with their young person for 1-2 hours every week, the focus of this time is on building a caring and trusting relationship. Our mentors help to support, encourage and equip our young people to step into a brighter future. If you would like to become a mentor or make a young person referral then please contact email@example.com
