Empowering young people to step forward for their future
MAST are driven by a single goal; to do our part in providing opportunities for improving the chances of success for young people. We believe that a single action can make a difference to a future, and that collective action can greatly impact cohesion with their community.
MAST Tutor and develop skills of young people at a location where they already feel safe, are surrounded by people familiar to them, with the stability they need, this could be their home, local library, youth or community centre or venue. By removing physical, psychological, financial, geographical, cultural and language and resource barriers we quickly and effectively keep young people engaged. This can also be achieved in school to aid transitions or to avoid exclusion.
Working with young people for at least 6 weeks MAST specialise in engaging with hard to reach young people from the age of 11 up to 24 years* who are marginalised through barriers to learning, and difficulties accessing a stable environment, conventional school or educational setting, and not in employment, education or training.
The voice of young people informs our activities and decision making, where we strive to build productive relationships and make a positive impact with all our pursuits. MAST works tirelessly to provide quality provision where each young person feels empowered to do something different and be part of their community.
To engage, evoke, focus
and co-produce a plan.
We recognise that all
young people have talents & skills
at a Time
Each individual pathway is opened with a holistic and motivational assessment to engage, focus, evoke and co-produce a plan, based on an asset approach, and ACE informed. Their journey of change is reviewed along the way to measure their distance travelled.
MAST's approach builds enthusiasm and energy, strengthens relationships, and move young people a to the next level.
With our young people prepared for independence MAST aim to transition the young people we work with from not in employment, education or training (NEET) to have moved forward in to employment, education or training (FEET).
Feeling empowered the young people that have traveled with MAST will continue their journey with the knowledge, skills and confidence to enable them to build their own stable, purposeful and fulfilling lives within their community.
With MAST young people are able to find out what they are good at, learn new things and become more confident.
MAST's Finding your FEET programme covers the skills, knowledge and experiences young people need to be successful, from living independently, working as a team, being creative, to organising a community event.
Achieve is designed with each individuals interests in mind. young people build a portfolio to capture their learning, celebrate their achievement and support their steps forward in employment, education or training.
Our goal is to overcome barriers to success.
With access to the right resources, young people can become empowered by their own abilities and gain the confidence to fulfil their potential.
MAST are available every step of the way to guide, support and celebrate each young person's achievement and give a hand/shoulder when needed.
Because we care, every young person that has worked with MAST will be able to keep in touch with us for as long as they want.
