CAST aims to enable young people in secondary schools to explore and make decisions on moral, physical, social and spiritual issues.
By developing and facilitating partnerships with schools, churches, voluntary groups, statutory agencies and local government, CAST provides professional, creative and innovative support within secondary schools for both staff and students.
Working in partnership with school staff, cast aims to contribute to:
Cast mentors act as friends and good role models to students (during school time) to encourage and support them for a short period of their life. They listen to and share experiences and challenges and help the young person to find solutions. Students are referred by internal school structures and are matched with the mentors by school staff who co-ordinate the project.
