Mothering and Mentoring

Our multi-award winning program supports pregnant girls and young mothers in a safe, non-judgemental environment with individual support plans developed by trained case managers.

Each girl will be given the opportunity to develop lifeskills, parenting, self-worth, healthy relationships, pre & post birth plans and physical & emotional well-being.

All girls are given the opportunity to develop their mothering skills through access to a variety of experts involved in maternity services, breastfeeding, child health and Child & Youth Mental Health Services (C.Y.M.H.S) and a General Practitioner.

All participants have access to STEMM’s Adjunct Care facility, enabling them to bring their young children from birth to 4 years of age to school with them.  Adjunct care is located in the same building allowing the young mothers to access their child through out the day.

STEMM has a bus that can pick up and drop off participants and their child/children to and from the program.

We are also fortunate enough to have the services of a Centrelink Representative and a Financial Advisor attend STEMM on a weekly basis to help our participants with financial enquiries and advice.

We have a Social Worker and Counselor in attendance daily to provide support to our participants as needed.

All participants are individually matched with carefully selected and trained mentors.
