Peeblesshire Youth Trust is a charity working in Peebles and the surrounding area. Our aim is to support children during the transition years from Primary to Secondary School. We engage with all 9 primary schools in the area and Peebles High School.
With our volunteers we work with around 50 children in the local area. Supporting them to grow in confidence and self esteem, getting alongside them to help them achieve their potential and helping them in the transition from primary to secondary education.
Our course Achieve Your Potential runs for 6 weeks over the winter term and is an activity based programme. Bringing mentees and mentors together they work as a team to develop skills and take part in fun challenges.
