TRACTION – Charity of the Month Recipient for July 2022
TRACTION is a not-for-profit, community-focused organisation that empowers vulnerable young people to discover, connect and realise their own positive and successful futures. Their innovative prevention and early intervention programs engage and support young people, typically aged 12-15, who find the mainstream classroom a challenge, and need some extra help to regulate their behaviour or to develop their confidence, resilience and strengths.
Many young people are facing challenges beyond their ability to cope.
- 1 in 10 is disengaged from education, training and employment.
- 1 in 4 have a mental health challenge
Tragically, more young people die from suicide than any other cause
By giving them the tools of resilience, in an environment that nurtures their social and emotional wellbeing, TRACTION helps young people to engage in learning, build connections, develop skills for healthy relationships, consider future employment pathways, and better manage life’s challenges
