We can support you to stay in school, or get back into education if you’ve left

Who we can help

You might be invited to take part if:

  • you’re 16 to 17, and you’re not in school, training or work
  • you’re 16 to 17, and you’re in school or training, but you’re at risk of dropping out, or
  • you’re 15, and you’ve left school with a Ministry of Education leaving exemption.

If this sounds like you, you can get in touch with your local youth service provider to find out how they can help.

Supporting you

Whatever’s going on in your life, your youth coach will be on your side. If you need to talk, your coach will listen. If your goals change, your coach can help you come up with a new plan. If something is holding you back, your coach can help you figure it out.

You can be in touch with your coach as much as you need to, but you’ll speak to them at least once a month, and meet at least every 90 days.

Connecting you to other services

Your youth coach will tell you about any money you could get towards your studies, like a student allowance, a scholarship, or fees free study.

Scholarships, grants and awards

If you’re dealing with an issue like a mental health problem, an addiction or a family crisis, your coach can put you in touch with a service that can help.
