Group Work & Programs

Building the human awareness, identity and confidence of a young person enhances their quality of life and prepares them with the skills and competence to realise their potential and to adjust to societies expectations. MYST delivers a range of structured personal development, therapeutic and recreation programs to young people both in and out of school in order to prevent crises and to establish healthy patterns of thinking and behaving.

As an adolescent struggling with a range of personal issues having someone that my daughter could relate to was invaluable. I am both a parent and high school teacher so I recognise the need for this critical support for young people. What the MYST team offers is transformative.

Programs are developed in response to the changing needs of young people and are delivered using evidence-based content and teaching methods. Mentors guide the young person through a tailored personal development pathway that includes personal goal setting and an achievable plan for reaching those goals. Feedback is given so that skills in personal reflection and awareness are increased and confidence is built.

The personal development programs are targeted interventions that address social and emotional issues identified by young people and other stakeholders including school welfare teachers. Through our programs young people develop a greater personal understanding of the issues affecting them and as a result, become better equipped to make positive choices for themselves.
