Youth mentoring programmes

The EPIK (Engaging Pacific Island Kids) youth mentoring programme allows Pacific youth to express themselves through sports activities.

The programme supports the participants to understand the importance of good health and wellbeing, as well as working with them to understand anxiety and how this may affect their moods and behaviours.

The Youth Mentoring Programme focuses on:

  • Expression through sports
  • Understanding good health and wellbeing
  • Understanding anxiety and its effect on mood and behaviour
