P2Connect offers mentoring for young people who are at risk of homelessness or homeless and are disconnected from families and support. Mentors work with the young people to help manage pathways into education, training, and employment as well as offer practical support such as transport, cooking, shopping, driving lessons, help with applications and much more. Or just have a coffee and chat! One on one support helps build trust, confidence and skills for young people to be able to manage their transition into adulthood.

Path 2 Change & proudly supported by nib foundation is offering a 12 week program incorporating exercise experiences that are fun, engaging and encourage teamwork and co-operation, to challenge young people and release natural endorphins to lessen symptoms associated with mental health. Three workshops dealing with setting goals, nutrition and mindfulness within a trauma informed framework, help educate and provide strategies to manage symptoms over the 12 weeks. Each participant will receive a ‘Fitbit Flex 2’ to track their personalised goals and an online connection will help to encourage each other along the way, and be supported by a professionally trained staff member throughout the program. Activities such as bubble soccer, ice skating, team games, self-defence and much more take place once a week for 3-4 hours, with transport and lunch provided.
