Young people with low self-esteem, low educational attainment and lack of positive role models are more likely to not make a successful transition into work, training or education, and are more likely to become parents at an early age. Teens and Toddlers targets two groups of vulnerable children simultaneously, raising the aspirations of young people age by pairing them as a mentor and role model to a child in nursery in need of extra support. Over the three year SIB, 1, young people will take part in the programme, with performance measured by improvements in attitude, behaviour, attendance and educational attainment. Teens and Toddlers takes a unique approach by helping two groups of vulnerable children simultaneously. This innovative model really stood out as one that could succeed in its targets and really achieve a significant social impact.
Things To Do with the Kids – From Toddlers to Teens
Teens & Toddlers
We give disadvantaged young people the life skills, qualifications and self belief they need to keep them in education, employment and training and to avoid risky behaviour. Our ultimate aim is to inspire young people to achieve their full potential. Teens and Toddlers was founded to address the social exclusion of young people via the youth development initiative. We run a range of programmes, including: Teens and Toddlers, which raises the educational attainment, self-esteem and aspiration of disadvantaged teenagers; Young Leaders, which encourages the development of youth-led community projects that teach new skills to gain employment; and school mentoring to support the personal development of young people at risk.
