Supporting young people who are involved with the Youth Offending Service to engage and participate in education. 

Sova has mentors based in the 5 Youth Offending Team across Birmingham working with young people under 16, who may have become disengaged with school or are have been identified as being at risk of exclusion.

Our mentors provide holistic support, engaging with the young people, their families and interested professionals. Sova works hard to find out what specific barriers young people are facing and supports them to gain the confidence to overcome them and solve problems for themselves.

We work for a minimum of 3 months with each young person.

I trust my mentor like no other adult I have known …talking my language and not giving up on you when like you slip back
