JAC is committed to engaging with young people, encouraging them to make positive choices
JAC mentoring programmes are suitable for young people who have an interest in any of the activities mentioned, like being outdoors and may be struggling in the educational setting due to behavioural, emotional, social and or learning difficulties / disabilities.
Young people are referred to this programme from Social Services, Schools, Local Education Authorities, Pupil Referral Units, Youth Services and Parents. We can work with young people in small groups, if appropriate, but most of our work is 1-1.
How much does it cost?
Prices can vary according to the needs of the young person, or mentor-to-young-person ratio. Most sessions are priced at £30 per hour (for our basic programme).
Sessions cost us more to deliver than we charge, but we reduce the cost to schools, parents, and councils by about £15 in order to keep sessions affordable and accesible. This means a £30 charge represents a session that costs JAC £45 to provide.
Our art-based mentoring programme gives a wide scope for projects in different mediums and preferred topics.
Learning and developmental therapy for children and young people through the use of horses, mentors and therapists.
Our horticulture programme allows young people to access our mentoring while learning to care for plants and how to grow a wide variety of plants.
Our mentoring through pottery involves a variety of projects and learning to use the wheel as well as hand sculpting teachniques.
Our small animals programme provides mentoring around the context of learning to care for rabbits, goats, guinea pigs, chickens and our Shetland Pony, Woggle.
