Youth Specialist Programme

Youth Specialists

Our Youth Specialist Programme places fully qualified youth work or education professionals into secondary schools on a full or part-time basis.  The Youth Specialists become embedded within the school community and are well placed to identify at-risk young people.   Students can self-refer or be referred by school staff, parents, police or other agencies.   The Youth Specialists assess each case then enrol the young people on one or more of the following:

  • One-to-one mentoring sessions
  • Group work
  • Support groups

Eikon currently operates the Youth Specialist Programme at the following locations:

Getting Support from an Eikon Youth Specialist

To access this service a young person who attends the school (or their parent/carer) must talk with a teacher or the Youth Specialist.

You can only get this kind of support if you are a current student at a school that has an Eikon Youth Specialist in place.
