Springboard’s holistic and integrated approach employs proven multi-dimensional family and community-based programmes that fully encompass the needs of at-risk young people. These programmes create pathways for the young people to move between as they journey with Springboard staff and mentors. The relationships developed often provide early intervention and opportunities to the head off potentially compounding ‘risk factors’.
The Springboard Model places the young person at the centre of a network of professional and voluntary mentors, family and community members, targeting their entire social support system. Springboard provides a wrap-around service that engages the community in delivery.
Springboard’s toolkit of programmes include: – alternative education, an intervention programme for youth offenders, work transition initiatives to help young people gain employment, family support services including parenting courses, counselling and practical support, an intensive preventative mentoring programme and community engagement initiatives. More information on each of these programmes is listed below.
