Stepping Stones™ is a basic numeracy literacy program for year 11 and 12 students that are totally disengaged from mainstream education. In partnership with The Department of Education and MAXSolutions, the program is designed specifically for behaviour change/modification and their learning environment is adapted to suit the unique and individual needs of the students.

The program aims to help young people who are of compulsory school age, but who for a variety of reasons are not turning up to school.  The programs curriculum and ‘hands-on’ learning activities focus on building skills that will enable the participants to access further education, training and/or employment.

Stepping Stones™ aims to re-engage young people, identify issues they have that caused the initial disengagement and attempt to address it to ensure long-term success. The program aims to transition participants into further certified training, back into school or into employment when the time comes for them to comfortably move on from the centre.

The Stepping Stones™ program is currently delivered at Gosnells PCYC, Northam PCYC and Midland PCYC.

These are opportunities where people are able to share their skills and experiences with other people who attend programs. They take on the role of a senior member/mentor to their peers.
